HAT Forum - Did Canadians really accept refugees?

  • The 519 519 Church Street Toronto, ON, M4Y 2C9 Canada (map)

Proposer: Karen Lynn

As a primer to our discussion, there is an interesting article from The Star of interest and you can read it HERE.

The questions are:

1.        Is there a danger of returning to racist policies of the past?

2.       What criteria should we adopt to accept or refuse refugees?

3.       What should we do about the refugees streaming into Canada from the USA? i.e. those who feared that Trump was going to revoke the temporary refugee status granted to Haitians; Hondurans and El Salvadorans might do the same thing; Trump may deport people who had been brought to the USA as children, etc.

4.       How should we integrate refugees into our country?
