Canada’s new Prime Minister is turning American heads with his heart-warming message to Syrian refugees who will call Canada home this Christmas.
This was the first Christmas message ever for the newly elected PM, Justin Trudeau, and boy did he make sure it was one for the history books.
We will look back upon 2015 one day, and be completely ashamed at the way our country treated refugees in need; Trudeau will be able to look back with pride.
On Wednesday, Trudeau made his annual Christmas statement, and not forgotten were the countless refugees that would otherwise be stuck in war-torn Syria if not for countries like Canada, who have welcomed refugees with open arms.
Thousands of refugees have already arrived in Canada, with 10,000 expected before December 31st, and 100,000 expected by February.
Raw Story reported this:
“With more than an estimated 1 million refugees having arrived in the European Union this year, a global refugee crisis has seen people fleeing Syria especially, as well as countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq. Trudeau told the people of his country that he hoped that Syrian refugees would feel as welcome as any Canadian citizen during the holiday season.”
Only difference in Obama’s refugee plan and Trudeau’s, is that Justin Trudeau doesn’t have the citizens he governs against his every move.
Canada is able to have a peaceful Christmas without any of the typical American stresses, i.e. mass shootings, ISIS terror attacks, hillbilly terror attacks, etc.
He has the full support of Canadian citizens, and that truly makes a difference in the Prime Minister himself.
President Obama looks haggard and unhappy, and can you imagine why?
The things that are said about his wife and children alone are reason enough to make a man lose his temper, but he has remained classy throughout.
These are not things that are said by foreigners, and that probably hurts more than anything.
Barack Obama has given America 8 years of his life and his youth in the fight to keep Americans safe, and for what?
For the very citizens he is protecting to turn their backs on him.
Justin Trudeau, looking blissfully peaceful, had a smile on his face throughout the entire message:
“This is a time to give thanks for loved ones, and look back on the past year. We come together – in places of worship, around the table, or under the tree – to celebrate the spirit of the season.”
“We often celebrate this time of year by showing our generosity to family and friends. I trust that we will do the same with the thousands of people who are experiencing the Canadian holidays and the Canadian winter for the first time – the Syrian refugees. After all, we share values of love, hope, and compassion. It’s what we do and it’s who we are.”
“Let us also take time to remember the brave women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces who cannot be with their families. We appreciate these sacrifices for our country – not just today, but every day.”
“My friends, I’m deeply grateful for the support you’ve shown my family and me over this past year. I am honored to have this opportunity to serve you.”
“From our family to yours, Sophie and I send you the warmest of Christmas wishes and all the best for health and happiness in 2016.”
