Cutting Canadians for Syrian Refugees

Maybe we can just have a lottery and decide whether we want to look after Canadian homeless families or Syrian homeless families. The loser gets to live on the streets of Toronto. Oh wait… they already are.

By Randall Palmer and Julia Edwards OTTAWA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Canada’s government will inevitably have to cut some corners on security screening to achieve its ambitious goal of bringing in 25,000 Syrian refugees by year-end, said current and former security sources. The plan by newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seeks to complete in six weeks a process that can take up to two years in the United States, where last Friday’s attacks in Paris have sparked a political backlash against plans to allow in 10,000 Syrians over the coming year. In Canada, which shares about 5,500 miles (8,850 km) of relatively porous border with the United States, Friday’s attacks have prompted calls for Trudeau to push back the Jan. 1 deadline to ensure all the refugees are properly screened.
