Since the very first immigrants to Canada in 1604, our ancestors have been welcoming other immigrants ever since with open arms. This picture taken close to Emerson, Manitoba, could not be more Canadian. Let the politicians argue about the best way to deal with the influx of people over open Canadian borders and in the meantime, let's celebrate and be proud of our open hearts and minds. What a perfect time to honour our 150th anniversary of Confederation!
Thank you to all the RCMP, police and EMS folks looking after these brave and vulnerable migrants, and a very big thank you to the fine people of Emerson. You are all making Canadians very proud!
