Canadian PM meets refugee baby named in his honour

Canadian PM meets refugee baby named in his honour

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has released an official Spotify playlist.

Afraa Hajj Hammoud and Mohammed Belal fled Syria in 2016 and now call the Canadian city of Calgary home, according to CBC News. Their two older children, four-year-old Naya and three-year-old Nael, came with them.

Earlier this year in Ontario, another Syrian couple named their newborn Justin in tribute to the prime minister.

Justin Trudeau says he has B.C.in his blood.

The family said naming their son Justin-Trudeau was their way of thanking the Prime Minister. After learning Canada was starting to take in Syrian refugees after Mr Trudeau became Prime Minister, they jumped at the chance to leave.

Fan Sneaks Backstage with Fake Credential, Walks out with Conor McGregor
In 2016, prior to a fight against Nick Diaz, McGregor called him a "cholo gangster from the hood". We don't reckon either party will be too impressed, but hey, at least we got a laugh out of it.

More than 40,000 refugees have been resettled in Canada since November of 2015.

"My husband says 'How about if we name the boy Justin-Trudeau, like him, '" she said.

Ms Hammoud told CBC, in Syria, boys are usually named after their fathers or grandfathers. "He held (the baby) and he said, 'This is Justin-Trudeau, ' and then he says, 'I appreciate that you named him after my name", she said further.

While Donald Trump has banned travel to the US from several Muslim countries, Justin Trudeau has welcomed over 40,000 Syrian refugees to Canada, and around 1,000 settled in the Alberta city of Calgary.

After US President Donald Trump in January first announced his travel ban barring immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, Mr Trudeau struck a decidedly different tone on his Twitter.
