While Conservatives are in a frenzy over the prospect of Syrian refugees coming to America in order to find safe harbor from ISIL, the Canadian government welcomed 163 Syrian refugees into the country with open arms.
In the picture above, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomes a little girl to Canada. American Conservatives would call her a ‘terrorist.’

Trudeau welcoming another family:
Mother Jones reports:
Their arrival marks the first of 25,000 refugees Trudeau’s government has pledged to take in by March. During Trudeau’s campaign for office, it was discovered that the three-year-old boy who drowned near a beach in Turkey had been attempting to flee Syria with his family to Canada. Those powerful images made the refugee crisis a major election issue.
“It was very uplifting and inspirational. They keep thanking Canada for our hospitality,” Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie said. “I thought they would be exhausted but they were all just as elated and happy to be welcomed to Canada.”
“They step off the plane as refugees, but they walk out of this terminal as permanent residents of Canada with social insurance numbers, with health cards and with an opportunity to become full Canadians,” Trudeau said just before the plane’s arrival, The Star reports.
“This is something that we are able to do in this country because we define a Canadian not by a skin colour or a language or a religion or a background, but by a shared set of values, aspirations, hopes and dreams that not just Canadians but people around the world share.”
That’s the definition of ‘pro-life.’
