The flight was three hours late, but they came!
They were actually processed in a little-used Terminal at the Pearson airport, which had been revamped and set up for the arrival of the refugees. There were people who went to main terminal to greet them, but officials said “Thanks, really, but they’re tired and seeing a whole crowd of people will just be incredibly overwhelming.” (I might be paraphrasing).
PM Trudeau, Premier (of Ontario) Kathleen Wynne, Toronto mayor John Tory and other government officials were there to welcome them, and give out things like winter wear, snacks, and other useful things. (If this looks like crap, I’m trying to post this in Internet Explorer and WOW is the editor a piece of shit in IE)
