"We are determined to build an economy which works for everyone, not only for the richest 1%… We are going to refuse to give in to pressure to change our most profound innermost ideas to win easy votes. People of the world expect more from us and we expect more from ourselves. There is a choice to made. Strong, diverse, resilient countries like Canada didn’t happen by accident and they won’t continue without effort. Every single day, we need to choose hope over fear, diversity over division. Fear has never created a single job or fed a single family. And those who exploit it will never solve the problems that have created such anxiety."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, October 1, 2016 to the UN Assembly

There is nothing I can possibly add, except that is the kind of leadership I have wanted here, for a very long time.
