Canada's history of welcoming refugees

Given Canada's history of welcoming refugees, perhaps it is no wonder Harry and Meghan are said to be thinking of this country as their refuge from the royal family.

But we should remember that what attracts people to Canada is our commitment to tolerance and equality.  We're not so big on privilege and entitlement.  First thing we need to do is nix the dumb ideas starting to appear about making that poor boy governor general or commander in chief or leader of the Conservative Party or something. He's not even a Canadian citizen

If Harry really wants acceptance in Canada (he hasn't said so), maybe he should start by asking for membership in Citizens for a Canadian Republic  or Republic Now
