You know how Canadians aren’t really in a mad rush to accept a high number of refugees in a short period of time?
Well, as some of us learned at a technical briefing held in Ottawa by government officials Wednesday morning, neither are a lot of those refugees in a rush to come to Canada.
Turns out, a lot of people want to go home when the war is over.
The 271 Syrian refugees that have arrived since November 4th when the new government took power, were people whose applications were already in process, and then there are the other 9,090 people in process that aren’t here yet. That’s right - ones that the mean old Harper government were working on bringing in. Conservatives focused their efforts on private sponsorships so that would be mainly people with family in Canada who have connections to our country.
Many of the others simply don’t want to come. They don’t hate Canada per se, it’s just that they’d rather go home and that’s why they prefer to stay in refugee camps in Turkey so they’ll be close to home when the war is over.
Funny, that was a point that Stephen Harper made during the election campaign. He quoted people he had spoken to who said that Canada could help by helping those on the ground that didn’t want to leave. For that he was described as uncaring.
This refugee rush has been a white liberal guilt exercise from the beginning - driven by partisan politics and the heartbreaking picture of a dead toddler shared generously by the main-stream media along with the false story that his family had been rejected by Canada.
The Liberals promised 25,000 refugees, a number which has now grown with Immigration Minister John McCallum saying we’ll likely take in close to 50,000 by the end of 2016 but so far, just 1,800 of 41,000 contacted even expressed an interest.
It looks like the hesitancy of Canadians to take part in the refugee rush is matched by the hesitancy of Syrians who don’t seem to want to be part of it either.
