Toronto, Dec. 11 (ANI): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has welcomed the government plane carrying Syrian refugees in Toronto and pledged to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of February.
According to ABC News, Canada welcoming the military flight carrying 163 refugees stands in stark contrast to the United States.
Canada’s more populous southern neighbour plans to take in just 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year, which again is in contrast to the US.
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump caused a worldwide furor with a proposal to temporarily halt Muslims from entering the U.S.
“You are home. Welcome home,” Trudeau said to the families arriving in Toronto. He earlier thanked staff and volunteers who were processing the refugees. (ANI)
