Opposition promises to increase Syrian refugees to Canada post-election

Migrants arrive at a Macedonian railway station in Gevgelija on August 22, 2015, after more than 1,500 mostly Syrian refugees entered Macedonia from GreeceAs the Syrian refugee crisis became a major campaign issue this week, the Canadian opposition party New Democrats promised Saturday to welcome 46,000 Syrian refugees to Canada if it wins the upcoming legislative elections. The announcement follows intense media coverage of the death of a Syrian toddler who drowned as his family fled the war-torn country and a refugee crisis shaking Europe, which has put migration policy front and center in the October 19 elections. The New Democrats say they are asking the current Conservative government to accept 46,000 refugees through 2019 — 10,000 this year and 9,000 each of the next four years.
