Canada must ensure little Alan Kurdi did not die in vain
In life, little Alan Kurdi, his brother Ghalib and mom Rehan were three out of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children who’ve fled Syria and the murderous ISIS regime.
They’d already moved twice because of violence in that country before taking to a dinghy in a desperate bid to reach safety.
In death, the achingly tragic image of Alan’s tiny body washed up on a Turkish beach is galvanizing the world.
Here in North America, we’ve been largely insulated from the humanitarian crisis that’s unfolding in Europe. A vast wave of humanity is exiting Syria in search of peace and stability.
