Prime Minister Trudeau made headlines around the world last week when he tweeted the hashtag “#WelcomeToCanada” in response to Donald’s Trump immigration “pause”. Let’s encourage Trudeau now to make good on his hashtag and welcome these most persecuted Yazidi people to safety in Canada.
HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
1) SEND E-MAILS
Please e-mail PM Trudeau, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, and your own Member of Parliament and ask them to act on their promise to welcome Yazidi women and girls to Canada in a significant way.
