Syrian RefugeesPublished on 20 June 2016 Hansard and Statements by Senator Mobina Jaffer
Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: My question is also to the leader.
Leader, today is World Refugee Day in Canada, and I was wondering if you knew the status of private sponsorship of Syrian refugees.
Thank you, leader. When you are making the inquiries, may I please also ask that you look into what is the holdup? I have had so many people from British Columbia, especially church groups, contacting me saying that they have applied to bring refugees, and they’re still waiting, so if you can ask that.
What are future plans to bring further refugees from Syria?
