Canadian PM Justin Trudeau meets Syrian baby named after him

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's summer Spotify playlist includes tracks by Drake k.d. lang and Fiona Apple

According to a report in CBC News, on meeting the prime minister baby Trudeau's mother said, "It was actually very good, it was incredible".

On Saturday, July 15th, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his Spotify summer playlist and yes, it's very Canadian. In fact, it appears he may have slept right through it.

Trudeau had recently granted asylum to a number of Syrian refugees who had fled their homes due to the war. Justin Trudeau Adam Bilal was seen fast asleep on Trudeau's lap. Ahmed Doso, a Syrian father in Red Deer, Alta has also named his son after the PM.

The couple had chosen to name their newborn after Mr Trudeau as a gesture of appreciation to their adopted country. "He is a really nice man", Hammoud told BBC News of the Canadian prime minister. This was a small thank you for bringing us to Canada.

After just two months, that meeting became a reality when a last-minute opening in his schedule allowed Prime Minister Trudeau to attend the annual Calgary Stampede. The family took refugee in Canada on February a year ago and their baby was born in Alberta, after few months.

The Syrian family are not the only ones to name their baby after the Canadian prime minister. Pictures have been shared by Trudeau's official photographer Adam Scotti on Twitter showing Justin Trudeau Adam Bilal sleeping comfortably in the arms of his namesake, NDTV said.
