The atmosphere turned sour at a Conservative Party event in Welland, Ont., when reporters asked Stephen Harper about Syrian refugees.
Harper was asked by reporters to further explain his security concerns about refugees, as well as how he would speed up the process of bringing Syrians to Canada.
The Conservative leader didn’t offer any new answers.
“We are going to make sure we identify the most vulnerable people from the most vulnerable groups,” Harper said.
“We are also going to make sure, in particular when we are talking about a significant number of people who come from a terrorist war zone, we are going to make sure that all screening is done to make sure we protect the security of Canada and Canadians.”
