“Do you want to know where the Syrian middle class is? They are living refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. They are moving across Europe looking for a place to set down roots to get their kids back into school, to find steady work and to become productive citizens. Refugee camps are teaming with Syria’s middle class, doctors and lawyers, teachers and entrepreneurs. They are well educated, they work hard. They care about their families. They want a better life, a safer and more secure future for their kids as we all do.”

“One of the issues we see right now resonating around the world is worries about globalization, withdrawing support for trade and economic policies that would create growth and the anxiety whether it’s about migrations or security that leads people to wanting to close in. And what Canada is talking about is the need for inclusive growth of opportunities for all, understanding that diversity and differences are tremendous source of strength and helping promote that, that is the narrative that right now the world needs.”

STORYLINE
Addressing delegates in the General Assembly, Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau said that in recent months, “Canadians have opened their hearts and their arms to families fleeing the ongoing conflict in Syria, adding that, “from the moment they arrived, those 31,000 refugees were welcome not as burdens but as neighbours and friends - as new Canadians.”

Trudeau defended the economic benefits of globalization and diversity pointing out “in Canada, we see diversity as a source of strength not weakness. Our country is strong not in spite our differences, but because of them.”

In reference to the millions of Syrian refugees he said, “Do you want to know where the Syrian middle class is? They are living refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. They are moving across Europe looking for a place to set down roots to get their kids back into school, to find steady work and to become productive citizens.”

Trudeau noted that refugee camps are hosting the Syria’s middle class, including doctors, lawyers, teachers and entrepreneurs. He said “they are well educated, they work hard. They care about their families. They want a better life, a safer and more secure future for their kids as we all do.”

Later at a press conference, the Canadian Prime Minister told reporters “one of the issues we see right now resonating around the world is worries about globalization, withdrawing support for trade and economic policies that would create growth and the anxiety whether it’s about migrations or security that leads people to wanting to close in.”

He said his country is talking about “the need for inclusive growth of opportunities for all, understanding that diversity and differences are tremendous source of strength and helping promote that, that is the narrative that right now the world needs.”
