Today is a proud moment for Canada.
Already members of Canada’s high-tech industry are saying that the America First policy of the Trump administration will cost the U.S. many highly trained personnel, many of whom will come to Canada.

Canada is a diverse country and is made stronger by that diversity. Trudeau’s pledge will not be without cost as refugees and immigrants adjust to our culture and laws. But morally it is the right thing to do. Ethics, not politics, not economics are the foundation of this country.
On the American side of the border, the actions of Trump are deeply concerning. The strongest nation in the world is throwing its weight around in ways that remind us of frightening times in other lands in the past.
We hope the good hearts in the United States find ways to curb Trump’s excesses. And Canada must stand strong when our turn comes to be bullied by the U.S. president.
For a young, inexperienced man, Trudeau is showing leadership beyond his years.
