It is a shame that a number of Canadian toddlers and young children are being humiliated at the airport in the name of extra security checks and delayed in boarding their plane with their parents. How as a society have we reached this level of complacency, accepting that such actions are "normal" under the pretext of living in security?

As thousands continue fleeing war and persecution in a desperate attempt to find safety in Europe and North America, media and NGOs alike have improperly termed the daily stories of suffering, heartbreak and death at sea a "refugee crisis." Such language improperly places blame on those seeking asylum, and shifts attention from what even Stephen Harper ventured earlier this month were the "root causes" behind the mass movement of humanity.
