The first plane of Syrian refugees  landed in Toronto late Thursday night  and  in this video they are greeted by Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Kathleen Wynne.

The first family was a couple with their 16-month-old girl and the second was a man and woman with their three daughters, two of whom are twins. Both families said they were happy to be here.

All of the Syrians on board are being sponsored by private groups, many of whom had filed the paperwork months ago in order to bring in some of the estimated 4.3 million Syrians displaced by the ongoing civil war in that country.
