Children victimized in Syrian civil war

Canada's support of children in war-torn country appalling

Today, I am ashamed to be Canadian.

I am appalled and disgusted that Canada is not doing more to help children in Syria. While I sit and pay for Stephen Harper’s salary and spending account, hundreds of children are dying by the day.

What is the media doing to support them? Is the media applying pressure to the federal government to mobilize aid? As a Canadian citizen, I increase your ratings by turning on the news. When do you do something for me?

I’m asking that you help these children, draw as much attention to their plight as you possibly can. Tell Canadian citizens what it is they can do to help.

Somebody needs to get to those children, any way they can.
