They cross the border illegally, RCMP take them into custody, RCMP hand them off to CBSA... pretty straightforward. The refugees are being completely compliant, the RCMP members are doing their job while showing some human compassion to people who have endured a hard slog... That's about the story here.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Looks like the RCMP are just being decent as mentioned above. Now the media will spin it as they see fit, but the Mounties on the ground appear to be doing the right thing.

Politics aside, what I see is two men helping a ( 4-5 year old? ) child.

Well, whoopdy-do!

We have a family or two every night or second night making "an incredibly hard trek" of  a few miles in snow, paying "thousands of dollars" to human traffickers for the privilege (but not stoping for a few minutes at a Minnesota store, spend a hundred buck, and get themselves a pair of boots and a warm parka). And suddenly the Canadian media has a "human crisis at the Canadian border" hard on and must run around to "get the story". It is to borrow presidential vocabulary "totally" made up.  (BTW, did it occur to anyone that if they wait a few months, they'll be able to make the same walk of a few miles in comfort because it will be summer?).


Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean: http://www.iom.int/news/mediterranean-migrant-arrivals-2016-204311-deaths-2443

I rest my case.

This story definitely feels like a Canada standing up to evil Trump's harmful immigration policies pitch to it.

Help them out. Give them medical aid if required, maybe a nice parka. Charge them. Send them back to the US.

I keep wondering when one of those Hollywood "celebrities" will make this trip.   >:D
