Canada to resettle 25 000 refugees
« on: November 24, 2015, 12:19:33 PM »

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will announce on Tuesday his plan to resettle 25 000 Syrian refugees and he says all 10 of Canada's provincial premiers support bringing that many in.

Trudeau hasn't backed down from a pledge to bring 25 000 Syrian refugees to Canada by December 31 despite pushback by some following the deadly attacks in Paris.

Details of how the refugees will be brought over and where they will be housed are expected to be announced Tuesday.

"Everyone agrees that Canada must do more and must welcome 25 000 refugees," Trudeau said after meeting with provincial leaders late on Monday.

Tuesday's announcement is sure to raise alarm in the US where many Republican governors have said they don't want any Syrian refugees.

Trudeau said robust security screening continues to be a high priority.
