SHAFAQNA- In a rare moment of national unity Canadian parliamentarians set aside political squabbling yesterday to unanimously support a motion that formally recognizes ISIS persecution of Yazidis as a genocide and pledges to bring refugees fleeing the violence to Canada within four months.

MPs from all four parties presented in the House of Commons voted 313-0 to carry the motion brought in by the Conservative Party.
