Syrian refugee in Canada saves the day by mending bride’s wedding dress

Introduction — Sept 30, 2016

You would think that some guy fixing a bride’s wedding dress was hardly “news” but that is not the case when he happens to be Syrian. Then it makes headlines across the world. Here’s a small selection of stories that have appeared in the past few hours:

New to Guelph, Syrian refugee’s intervention saves wedding day

Woman learns her Syrian refugee neighbor is a master tailor after saving her wedding dress

Toronto bride’s wedding day crisis averted thanks to Syrian refugee’s help

Newly arrived Syrian refugee helps save bride’s wedding day

One can only marvel at the global interest. Even more intriguing is the way the international press seemed to work in coordination to promote this story.
As if the elite owned media were trying to counter all the negative publicity generated in the wake of the refugee crisis in Europe.
Meanwhile the fighting goes on in Syria while the elite owned media pointedly ignores the West’s aid to the militants there, which is contributing to the refugee crisis.
Of course not all Syrian refugees are bad but this story is hardly representative of the crisis. It only serves to distract readers from the real cause of the crisis, which is ongoing western support for militants in Syria. Ed.

As Jo and her bridesmaids wondered what to do next, wedding photographer Lindsay Coulter suggested visiting the next-door neighbours to ask if they had a pair of pliers.

A bridesmaid was duly dispatched to seek help – and made a fortuitous discovery. “She came back with a handful of tools and some interesting information,” wrote Ms Coulter on her Facebook page.

“The next door neighbour was hosting a family of Syrian refugees and the father was a master tailor and would be happy to help if we weren’t successful.”

A few minutes later the neighbour, David Hobson, called round, bringing with him the tailor, Ibrahim Halil Dudu, and his son.

Mr Dudu and the boy had been Canada for just four days and, not speaking English, had been communicating with his hosts via Google Translate.
