Statement on LGBT Syrian Refugees
Mr. Randall Garrison (Esquimalt - Saanich - Sooke, NDP): Mr. Speaker, in November, when the government announced it would recognized LGBT refugees as among the highest risk Syrian refugees, I was among the first to praise the government for changing Caanda's policy to recognize the fact that LGBT refugees are subject to extra risks simply because of who they are.
