Greg Selinger, Manitoba premier, asks feds to double refugee sponsorship cap

Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger added his voice to those of provincial and municipal leaders calling for immediate action from the federal government on the Syrian refugee crisis.

“We think we can double the number of people we can take in the refugee category,” Selinger said in an interview on Sunday on CBC News Network’s Power & Politics.

“We’ve been capped for several years at about 500 on the public side. If the federal government would lift the cap on public sponsorship, we’d be willing to do even more. It’s always been our objective to have more people come into Manitoba.”

Immigration is a federal issue. Provinces have lobbied the government for more say over immigration and refugee issues, but currently only Quebec has control over its own immigration policies.
