Fateless Posted December 22, 2015 Share Posted December 22, 2015 3 hours ago, DonLever said: Why stop at 50,000 refugees then, make it as million if you think we should take as many refugees as possible. They are hundreds of millions of refugees in the world, should we take them all in? The United States has ten times the population of Canada and they are only taking in 10,000 Syrian Refugees. Your point about the population of the US only further proves that Canada is probably in a better position to bring in more refugees anyways - Canada has a ton of space to settle refugees while much of America is already saturated. Regardless, why does it matter what other countries are doing? So long as Canada screens refugees properly - why not take in as many as we can? I think Canada has a responsibility as a first world country to help people in need where we can do it safely and within our financial means. If we cannot meet the fiscal budget if we let in over a certain number, so be it - but we should do everything in our power to help as many people as we can - isn't that what it means to be Canadian?
