Canada: Syrian airlift making history, 26,000 have arrived with 10,000 more being ‘welcomed’

They are having a problem finding housing, but what the heck, let’em in!
From The Guardian:
Canada will take in an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees, adding to the more than 25,000 already received in the last few months, said immigration minister John McCallum.
McCallum told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp he was responding to complaints from Canadian groups who want to sponsor Syrian refugees but did not have their applications processed quickly enough to be among the government’s initial target of 25,000.
“We are doing everything we can to accommodate the very welcomed desire on the part of Canadians to sponsor refugees,” McCallum said in a phone interview with CBC News from Berlin, where he is meeting with the German interior minister.
By the way, Canada’s system is different from ours. They have some government resettled refugees and some privately sponsored ones, ours are all taxpayer-funded refugees with no private sponsorships. Although I think that legally a group/church could still sponsor a refugee family to America, but the resettlement contractors would probably scream bloody murder because it could cut into the numbers they are paid to seed throughout the country.
