Roxanne James There 27 Other Countries For Refugees To Go To Than Canada. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Roxanne James doesn’t understand why in the world a refugee would choose to fly clear across the world to seek refugee status in Canada. When there are 27 other countries, that are much closer by, that would offer them immediate protection.
“We heard that within the European Union there are 27 countries, so someone from one particular country could choose to go to another country that’s very close by if they were fleeing for their life or in fear of persecution.
Why would someone come all the way to Canada and submit a claim as a refugee fearing for their life, as opposed to going to another country where they would have protection immediately?”
