“As a people and a government, Saskatchewan will do its part for those fleeing war and tyranny for safe asylum,” Wall posted on Facebook on Friday.

In an interview, Harrison said a letter was sent to the federal government in early August asking the federal government to increase Saskatchewan’s allotment of refugees by 15 per cent. The federal government has yet to respond, said Harrison.
