Standing inside one of the country’s foremost symbols of its openness to the world – the so-called “Gateway to Canada” – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said Sunday he’d consider airlifting Syrian refugees in order to fulfill his pledge to welcome 25,000 asylum seekers by Jan. 1.

Hundreds of boisterous supporters came to hear him speak at Halifax’s Pier 21, the former immigration depot that welcomed over one million immigrants and refugees between 1928 and 1971.

“For me, it’s always a humbling and an incredibly deep privilege to be able to stand here at Pier 21,” he said on a stage overlooking the Halifax port.
