Justin Time

“Canuck-nuck.” Who’s there? “Refugees from Syria.” Oh, cool. Welcome to Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau personally welcomed the 163 Syrian refugees who landed in Toronto last night. Canada is expecting 25,000 of the refugees to arrive by the end of February (and yes, they’re giving them winter coats on arrival). “This is a wonderful night where we get to show not just a plane load of new Canadians what Canada is all about but we get to show the world, how to open our hearts and welcome in people who are fleeing extraordinarily difficult situations.” (Now who’s the hoser?)

+ Here are more photos and words from the scene by way of Twitter Moments.
