Do you have a sense that there are really that many Yazidi refugees who want to come to Canada?


There at least three to four hundred thousand Yezidi in Syria and Iraq who would come to Canada at a moment's notice. They have lost everything. Their men and boys have been slaughtered by ISIS and thousands of their women and girls abducted into sexual slavery. Their towns have been decimated and current political realities prevent them from rebuilding their homes and lives. 

Yezidis are often victims of hostile groups in the refugee camps themselves.
