June 15, 2016 : Sheriff welcome Syrians new to Canada and later witness their first picket for freedom of expression by the Legislature

May 15, 2016 Syrian refugees in Edmonton step up to help Fort McMurray fire evacuees: “I know the pain,” said Morhaf Aldiri, who is leading the fundraising campaign. Syrian refugees living in Canada for a matter of months are among those raising funds to support victims of the Fort McMurray fire. Morhaf Aldiri, who arrived in Edmonton in February, said Albertans have been so kind to him that he simply had to do something to give back. "When I came it was very difficult," said Aldiri. "Another country, I don't know anything, any people, but lots of people help and help me, so it's very nice." Alidiri, 25, knows what it's like to lose everything. He and his family had to run for their lives when their house was hit by a bomb in their home city of Daraa, Syria, in 2013.
