Immigration minister says he will update Parliament within 10 days on number of refugees yet to come

移民部长说,他将在10天内在议会更新尚未到来难民人数

Immigration Minister John McCallum offers praise and congratulations to everyone inside Canada and out who helped the federal government bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees, but warns there is much more to be done. 

"We are not having a massive celebration about this, because it's only a victory for Phase 1," McCallum told reporters gathered at Toronto Pearson International Airport today.  

The effort now will shift to Phase 2: helping settled refugees find permanent living arrangements, jobs and to get them enrolled into language training for either French or English. 

The government has managed to bring the 25,000 Syrian refugees into Canada "at a cost of a little over $700 million, and I can tell you we are under the budget that we set," McCallum said. "We did not spend the reserves that we had established."

The minister did say, however, that the federal government would likely need additional funds to pay for the costs of language training, because many of the new arrivals do not speak French or English.  

This past weekend the government reached the 25,000 figure for settled refugees from Syria. That number included both government-sponsored and privately sponsored refugees. As of Feb. 27, private sponsors had brought in 8,527 Syrian refugees since the Liberals came to office.

In order to meet the Liberal government's campaign promise of bringing in 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, McCallum said, the federal government will have to settle another 10,000 Syrian refugees, plus some additional private refugees, before the end of the year. 

过去的这个周末,政府为叙利亚难民定居达到25000数字这个数字既包括政府资助私人赞助难民。截至2月27日,自从自由党开始执政以来,私人赞助带来了8527叙利亚难民

为了满足政府25000资助难民的自由党政府竞选承诺麦卡勒姆在今年年底前联邦政府将不得不安置一万叙利亚难民再加上一些额外的私人赞助的难民

McCallum said he would make an announcement in the next 10 days in Parliament to update the country on the exact number of refugees that Canadians can expect to see arrive before the end of 2016. 

The minister also took the opportunity to laud Canada for its efforts to welcome so many Syrian refugees at a time when they were being turned away from many other countries. 

"We were going in the opposite direction from many countries," he said. "Many countries from around the world today are making it more difficult for refugees to come,, and they are setting up more barriers, and we are among the few countries who are saying, 'No, come on in, we want to welcome 25,000 quickly.'"

"It's important that we're sending a message to the world, it's important that we're helping 25,000 people from desperate conditions have a happy and productive life in Canada," he said. 

Family reunification

McCallum told reporters that since he has become the immigration minister, his No. 1 focus has been to meet his party's election promise on the Syrian refugees, but now that priority would change to processing times for people already in the immigration system. 

The minister said it was unacceptable that the average wait time for a husband and wife to be reunited was two years, and in some cases longer, and now that the refugee file was winding down he would make streamlining his department a new top priority. 

"I will be undertaking a very major effort to improve the efficiency with which my department processes people to remove unnecessary steps," McCallum said. "I am ashamed that we, a country who view ourselves as being open to newcomers, should take two years to bring together husband and wife and even longer to bring in parents and grandparents."

The minister said his government learned a lot about how to be efficient through the Syrian refugee experience and is confident he can improve his department's waiting lists by applying the lessons learned there across his department.

自由党政府又一次公开耍花招,为达到其政治目的,把百姓当傻子欺骗。

他们刚刚吹嘘他们完成了竞选时的承诺,在二月底已经有25000叙利亚难民到达加拿大。注意这时候他们把由私人团体赞助的难民数也算在内了。
现在他们又说,兑现他们在竞选中作出的承诺,在今年年底之前,政府还需要再赞助 1万叙利亚难民。注意这时候他们不把由私人团体赞助的难民数也算在内了。
自相矛盾。自由党到底兑现了承诺没有?显然他们的承诺是信口开河。这个信口开河表现在时间期限上不断修改,在人数上也没有个准数。
