As you’re probably aware, this week Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met the first two plane loads of Syrian refugees coming to Canada (one on Thurs in Toronto, one tonight in Montreal). While most people have seen this as admirable, some cynics have called this grandstanding and mugging for the cameras. I for one believe him to be genuine, and IMHO a little reported action on Friday really shows how big Justin’s heart is.
Apparently on Friday, the PM came across a student on a school tour of the Parliament buildings who was having a bad day. Justin Trudeau, a former high school teacher, sat down on the steps of the Parliament building to talk with the kid.
