The Liberals are currently on par to miss their Syrian refugee intake target — yet again.
If they do, this will create even deeper doubts about the government’s ability to effectively manage important files.
“Canada wants to help. Everyone’s in agreement with that,” Michelle Rempel, the Conservative immigration and refugee critic and Calgary Nose Hill MP, said via telephone. “But we need to make sure we have a framework in place where the government is going to see a successful outcome. Refugees are people, they’re not numbers on a score card.”
No Ms. Rempel, not “everyone” wants to help create a new “cohort” of Canadian passport holders who will head back to Syria the minute they can yet as with the infamous “Lebanese” demand all the benefits of Canadian citizenship.
Hell they’ve already started to complain.
