Track Syrian refugees to ensure they prosper

In other words, the government doesn’t know enough about what happened to the newcomers once they arrived in Canada, so it can’t measure the success of its programming and identify areas where improvement is necessary.

That may well be costing municipal governments. Toronto, for example, needed to add $20 million to its shelter budget to extend hotel and motel contracts into 2018 to house refugee claimants who now account for 25 per cent of beds in the over-flowing system.

Hillary: My Server Was More Secure than Government Technology

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined radio host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday to discuss “What Happened” – what happened in the 2016 election, what happened with the FBI investigation into her emails, and what happened to her friendship with Donald Trump.

That last part may surprise voters, but it’s true. The two, she said, used to be “cordial” with one another.

Liberals’ count of 60 Canadian jihadists is a two-year-old number

The terrorist situation in Iraq and Syria is a continually evolving phenomenon. So why is the Liberal government using two-year-old data about terrorists and trying to pass it off as current?

This has been an issue for several years now — the return of Canadian ISIS fighters to home soil. And during that time it’s taken a lot of guesswork to piece together just how many jihadists we’re talking about.

How to talk to someone who doesn’t believe in climate change

“Climate change has become one of the taboo topics — like sex, politics and religion — that doesn’t get talked about at the Thanksgiving table,” says Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. “In fact, most of us are willing and even interested to discuss it, but their perception is other people don’t want to.”

So go ahead and engage with the uncle who insists the weather’s always been changing and it has nothing to do with us. Or the cousin who can’t make up her mind about anything — whether global warming is real or not, whether it’s serious or not, or whether it’s human-caused or not.

Ahmed Hussen: Rules Barring Would-Be Immigrants With Health Issues ‘Outdated’

A section of Canada’s immigration law barring anyone from settling in the country if they have a condition deemed a burden on medical or social services is outdated and needs to be brought in line with Canadian values, the minister in charge said Wednesday.

Citizenship and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said he’s committed to changing the rules currently spelled out in the country’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and left the door open to the possibility of repealing the controversial section altogether.
