Shared by David McNab, the video shows a refugee family decked out in winter gear having just the best time ever. McNab is one of the co-sponsors of the family and wrote that they feel very welcome in their new home.

"The people here are incredible. Peterborough is lucky to have this family and others that are hoping to make the journey here soon," wrote McNab, who is an Ontario Provincial Police constable.
