Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he is “jealous” of immigrants to Canada and their families, who, he said, have more of a stake in the country than others.
“Anytime I meet people who got to make the deliberate choice, whose parents chose Canada, I’m jealous,” he said in an interview that aired Friday morning on CTV.
“Because I think being able to choose it, rather than being Canadian by default, is an amazing statement of attachment to Canada.”
...“I always sort of laugh when you see people who are – not many of them, but – intolerant or who think, ‘Go back to your own country,’” Trudeau said in the television interview.
“No!” Trudeau continued. “You chose this country. This is your country more than it is for others because we take it for granted.”
