This question is obviously in relation to the boats of Sri Lankan refugees that have come to Canada. In the previous cases these were refugees and yes it is the responsability of any country which can help refugees to do so.
What "influx of illegal immigrants from boats" are you specifically thinking of? Can I get some examples? Perhaps I am not informed on this issue.
Mr. Dosters, this ia a question of allowing refugees into the country and has nothing to do with our quality of life. Accepting them is about saving their lives. Stop thinking about yourself all the time ... lol
