Syrian refugees protect themselves with a blanket during a rainy day in Istanbul on Nov. 25, 2014. Canada has admitted fewer than 1,000 Syrian refugees this year.

For Syrian refugees, it’s shame Canada: Burman

"Is it because they are mostly Muslim?
The Canadian government defends its approach toward Syria by pointing out that Canada is a significant cash contributor to the UN’s humanitarian efforts. 
But cash is not enough. Just as Africans need actual medical help, Syrian refugees need a genuine home. And Canada’s record pales in comparison with countries such as Sweden, with a population of only 10 million people, which is now home to 60,000 Syrian refugees."
