Sense.....you has it. I'd thank you 100x if I could for bringing a number that puts things into perspective into the discussion.
As usual, there is a bunch of Facebook hysteria that divides people to the two furthest extremes of the argument with little knowledge of anything about it.

attendees to a Welcoming party for refugees, in Vancouver, were pepper sprayed by some guy riding a bike

Crowd pepper-sprayed at Syrian refugee welcome party - NEWS 1130

Quote:
VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Vancouver police have converged on the Muslim Association of Canada Centre on Kingsway after a pepper-spraying incident.

It happened during a “welcome night” for newly-arrived Syrian refugees.

Police say it happened around 1030pm while a large crowd of men, women and children were gathered outside the MAC centre.

A man wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt is said to have rode by on a bike, spraying around 20 people.

The VPD says a number of people were treated on scene for exposure to the spray by Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services.

Police are still searching for a suspect.

No word on a possible motive.

Do you guys remember all those terrorist attacks we've had on our soil in the last ten years that were caused by the refugees?

Letting in 25,000 Syrians isn't a drastic jump in what our country has always done and the fear mongering I'm witnessing is outrageous. Fuck 9/11 happened and we let thousands in.
I think the irony is that a few thousand (out of the total of 25,000) refugees come to Vancouver/Lower Mainland area and everyone loses their minds because of whatever prejudices they may have.

Meanwhile, significantly more foreign investors - who, IMO, are doing far more damage to Canada than any refugee could ever hope to achieve - are sitting pretty in their multimillion-dollar houses because the government invited them to come and live here. And with the exception of a few articles in the news and one notable protest, nobody cares enough to do anything about it or ask the government why.

It's a numbers thing... personally I am more worried about the 100% reality that our housing market and economy has been skewed by these individuals who don't give a fuck about Canadians, rather than the 0.0001% PROBABILITY that one of these refugees MAY snap and pull off a terror attack...

It's an option, but that would be a very expensive way to do it and it would happen several times a year even in Vancouver (and several times a month in most Canadian cities during the winter) as opposed to once every ??? decades (has the Federal government ever taken on this many refugees in this short of a time period to necessitate something like this before?)

I believe there are temporary shelters for this very reason.

Although I agree with the first half of your post, I'm curious to know, what % of our Vancouver housing market is owned by foreign investment?

The government does enough for them.

I spend enough time in the DTES to know that for most residents there is no point of return.

You want to share a hotel with a crack addict or a person who drinks till he balcks out all the time?

Some people are just not capable of living with other people.

The hotels had to bid on hosting the refugees, anyways, so it's cost controlled.

I don't mind the refugees as long as we're getting women and children.

+90% of the refugees in Europe are men between the ages of 20-30. Guys that ruined their own country and want to go there for the benefits. I feel bad for Europe but its their fault for inviting them in.

The Canadian government is targeting young families and single mothers. Single males are last on their list.
