Please join MP Joyce Murray at her Friday, June 24, 2016 MP Breakfast Connections with guest speaker and immigration Lawyer Daniel McLeod: “Canada accepts 26,000 refugees a year on average – too many or too few?”
The ongoing conflict in Syria has triggered one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today. According to the United Nations, 13.5 million people inside Syria need urgent help. In response to this crisis, the government of Canada has welcomed more than 25,000 Syrian refugees since it took office in November, 2015. Some claim this is too big a burden while others believe Canada is not doing enough. Tell us what you think.
Join Joyce and immigration lawyer Daniel McLeod to discuss Canada’s refugee policy and how it shapes our community and the fabric of our society
