Oh, poor Canada….

From CBC News:

The Liberal government intends to honour its promise to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada over the course of the next seven weeks, says newly-appointed Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship John McCallum.

“It certainly remains our objective to get them here by the end of the year,” said McCallum during an interview on CBC News Network’s Power & Politics Friday.

“Military bases are a possibility… air transport… even naval transport has not been ruled out.”

“It’s a large amount of work to do in a very short time,” he said.

There is more, here.  By the way, the previous government (Harper) had said Canada would take 10,000 over the course of the next year.

For our America readers, be prepared, Obama isn’t going to like being upstaged!   Every one of you must continue to pound your elected officials in Washington (I know they are weak), but they seem to be the only thing standing between us and a mass invasion from the Middle East.  World ‘leaders’ are going mad!
