Syrian refugees in Canada -- note from me

On CBC's As It Happens tonight, Fasial Alazem, of the Syrian Canadian Council, stated that he does not know of even one example of a Syrian refugee being accepted into Canada even when the Harper government pledged back in July 2013 to accept 1300. Yes, as he noted, there are some Syrians who were already on Canadian soil as students or visitors, some of which were permitted to stay, but not one single instance of a refugee.  --- S N Smith
