The current migrant issue around the world has reached the tipping point. Every day, hundreds of migrants flee war-torn countries and areas and head for economic prosperity and safety, but what can actually be done about this issue and what is the root of the problem? What are countries like Canada doing about the influx of immigrants feeling imminent persecution or death?
To begin with, with support from the Canadian Government, 10,000 Syrians fleeing from danger will be relocated over the course of 3 years. If we were to put this into numbers, the average amount of money required to relocate a refugee from the middle east or elsewhere to Canada is above $15,000. 10,000 refugees would result in over $150 million to relocate, all of which would not be possible without the support of the Canadian government. Although there were already many refugees before the fight against ISIS, most experts do relate the influx due to the war on terror. Aside from the direct contribution in relocating refugees, the Canadian government along with other NATO allies are fighting the source of all this trouble. With over $200 million committed to fighting problem, it is clear that there is a sense of clear determination in our government.
So in the end, it is obvious that the Canadian government is doing work to protect innocent refugees, but there is a lot more to be done according to Immigration Canada. So what is your zakopinion on this topic?Follow @zakopinion
