Vancouver’s mayor wants to make the city a sanctuary for Syrian refugees

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) Vancouver’s mayor wants to make the city a sanctuary for Syrian refugees, starting with an information forum tomorrow night. The city says the Government of Canada isn’t meeting its international obligations to help with this crisis.

Gregor Robertson says the federal government should be looking at taking in 20,000 refugees each year by 2020 and he’s made a motion to send the request to the government in writing.

“The people of Vancouver have a proud history of welcoming refugees, and a deep commitment to ensuring that families affected by this ongoing crisis can find new hope, security, and opportunity in Canada. Vancouver must continue to expand upon the steps we are taking to be a welcoming city, but it’s clear that the Government of Canada has not been meeting our international obligations in this continuing humanitarian crisis.”
