They have been all over the place with their numbers especially since they realized they couldn’t get 25,000 relocated to Canadian towns by the end of December (less than 4 weeks from now).
So to make it look like Trudeau’s campaign promise isn’t a bust already they are now throwing around the number 50,000 over the next twelve months. (To get to that number they need to be bringing in around 1,000 a week! Good luck with that security screening!)
And, we better be beefing-up our northern border! (Maybe Donald should start adding that border to his campaign speeches!)

Among our top posts for the last couple of weeks is this one about Canadian military men being thrown out of barracks to make room for Syrians.
Now here is the mention of 50,000! (the first 300 arrived a few days ago). From The Desert Sun:
As Canada prepares to welcome the first of 25,000 Syrian refugees, the government suggests that number could double over the next year.
“The number of refugees is likely to be in the order of 35,000 to 50,000” by the end of next year, Immigration Minister John McCallum said.
The first “mass flight” of up to 300 refugees from Turkey and Jordan is expected to arrive by chartered aircraft*** on Thursday.
The new Liberal government made a commitment to resettle 25,000 refugees, along with those privately sponsored by churches and families, by the end of February.
Those coming to Canada are undergoing security, immigration and health checks.
The article goes on to tell us that most of the Syrians will come from UN camps, thus they will be nearly 100% Sunni Muslims just as are those entering the US now.
***There have been rumors of chartered flights bringing large numbers of refugees to the US. Surely someone has a photo if this has occurred!
