On September 3, 2015, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper commented on the drowning death of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, who drowned when a boat carrying migrants capsized on its way from Turkey to Greece.
He expressed his sadness at the child's death, and reminded his audience that blame for this tragedy and the migrant crisis lies with ISIS.
Harper also talked about Canada's role in the military coalition fighting ISIS, and the humanitarian aid Canada is sending to Syria and elsewhere.
While Canada has "the most generous immigration and refugee" program in the world, Harper added that ideally, migrants wouldn't be driven from their homelands in the first place. That is where military intervention comes in, to stop this kind of violence at the source.
