Canada has received a batch of refugees from Syria, as Canadian Premier welcomed these refugees in person.

Wearing new winter coats and gripping their 16-month-old daughter the Syrian couple arrived in Canada in the wee hours of Friday December 11, morning. This Syrian refugee family travelled to Canada on the first large government flight, in order to began their new life in Canada as they call it, “paradise.”

The Syrian refugee, who arrived in Canada Kevork Jamkossian told the Canadian Prime Minister “We really would like to thank you for all this hospitality and the warm welcome and all the staff – we felt ourselves at home and we felt ourselves highly respected.” While replying to him, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “You are home, Welcome home!”

The Canadian Premier was present at the airport to greet a planeload of worn out Syrian refugees who landed in Toronto early Friday, December 11. PM Justin Trudeau, handed them winter coats as he greeted them. “Tonight they step off the plane as refugees, but they walk out of this terminal as permanent residents of Canada,” Canadian Premier told the government employees who had gathered at the airport to greet these refugees.

“This is a wonderful night where we get to show not just a planeload of new Canadians what Canada is all about, but we get to show the world how to open our hearts and welcome people who are fleeing extraordinarily difficult straits,” PM Justin Trudeau said.

“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.”

“So I thank you deeply for being a part of this because this matters. Tonight matters, not just for Canada but for the world,” Canadian PM said.
