Justin Trudeau. The King of virtue

In Canada we got a very important thing right. Not perfect but right. In Canada we see diversity as a source of strength not weakness.

Our country is strong not in spite of our differences, but because of them.

And make no mistake we’ve had many failures from the internment of Ukrainian, Japanese and Italian  Canadians during the world wars, to our turning away of boats  of Jewish and Punjabi refugees, to the shamefully continuing marginalization of indigenous peoples.

What matters is that we learn from our mistakes and recommit ourselves to doing better.

To that end, in recent months, Canadians have opened their hearts and their arms to families fleeing the ongoing  conflict in Syria. And from the moment they arrived those 31 thousand refugees were welcomed not as burdens  but as neighbours and friends as new Canadians
