I'm not one for inspirational feel-good stories but man... this one really made me feel both amazed and ashamed as an American. This guy seems like a pretty hard-headed businessman who knows how to read a spreadsheet and assemble a team... and he spends his time and energy helping Syrian refugees succeed as new Canadians.

A modern day Schindler.

Uplifting story.

Would be more uplifting if more people were like him.

Jim Estill even has a TED talk.

Worth watching.
