Remind PM Harper: Canadians welcome refugees

REMIND Prime Minister Harper & Party Leaders:
CANADIANS WELCOME REFUGEES

Dear Tracy,
Such an event of sorrow, disgrace, and fury.
Yesterday the body of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi washed ashore on a Turkish beach, along with his mother and his young brother  -- all believed to have drowned as they tried to make a perilous, nighttime crossing to safety in Europe.

Aylan’s family set out on their dangerous journey from Syria after an application made by his uncle to resettle with an aunt in Canada was rejected for unknown reasons. 

Aylan's story is a heartbreaking and infuriating reminder that the Syrian refugee crisis is also Canada's crisis. 

>>TAKE ACTION: Send a strong message to Prime Minister Harper and all party leaders: CANADIANS WELCOME REFUGEES.

Canada’s commitment to resettling refugees has so far been modest, and the processing rates painfully slow. It is time for Canada to act decisively and generously to open up places of safety for those fleeing conflict. It’s a matter of life and death.

Now more than ever, Syrian refugees need our voices to get LOUDER.
Please use your Social Media channels to ask your friends and family to take action today!  
Thank you for reminding our political leaders that Canadians care and want action now.

With thanks,

Alex Neve
Secretary General
Amnesty International Canada
