Re: How welcoming are we to refugees really?
I am getting rather tired of all the political pundits and so- called other experts implying that Canadians are not a tolerant people. North Americans are the most accommodating folks on the planet, welcoming people from all over the globe for decades.
However that doesn’t mean that we should not also be cautious with world events such as they are and the threat of terrorism at such a high level.
The last time I looked, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Cuba, Iran and other rogue states have not exactly thrown out the welcome mat to desperate refugees.
