TORONTO – Canada's Conservative government says it will not accept more than its previously announced commitment of 10,000 Syrian refugees but will accelerate processing their applications to issue thousands more visas before the end of this year.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government announced Saturday that Canada will bring in these refugees by Sept. 2016, 15 months ahead of schedule, by processing them without the previously required document by the UNCR to designate them as refugees.
