Dozens protest refugee crisis at Ajax election office of immigration minister Chris Alexander

DURHAM — Canada has a “moral obligation” to allow more refugees fleeing the violence in Syria and Iraq to enter the country.

    That was one of the messages delivered by about 50 people gathered outside of Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Chris Alexander’s election campaign office in Ajax Wednesday evening to protest that Canada isn’t doing enough to help the refugees. Mr. Alexander is the Conservative candidate in Ajax riding in the Oct. 19 federal election. The campaign office, at Salem and Kingston roads, was closed and no one was there when the residents gathered, carrying signs with slogans such as ‘Refugees Welcome’, ‘No fences, no borders, Free movement for all.’
