Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has welcomed the first plane of Syrian refugees

The Liberal government has promised to bring in 25,000 Syrians before the end of February, more than twice the target of the Obama administration. Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was ousted in the October federal election, was preparing to allow in 10,000 Syrian refugees. About 65 percent of Canadians support the Liberal’s refugee policy, according to a November poll by Nanos Research.
