Exclusive: Leaked Syrian databases contain thousands of names of alleged terrorists and war criminals

The Prime Minister-designate, Justin Trudeau, in adamant to carry out his election pledge to bring to Canada 25,000 Syrian refugees before Christmas.

When asked about the refugees commitment in an exclusive interview to CTV News Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme, Trudeau said “that’s something we’re getting cracking on right away,” adding that he has already met with the Clerk of the Privy Council and the Governor General about implementing his platform. “I know this is a surprise to certain people within the political universe, but the commitments I made in that platform, I’m going to keep,” he said.

The outgoing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, opposed airlifting thousands of refugees from terror-reddin countries such as Syria and Iraq without conducting a proper security screening.
