Laura Albanese says there will be no refugees in Weston, according to Frances Nunziata’s circular.
This week, the Liberal federal government released their plans to resettle refugees. The headline announcement was a drastic reduction in the number Canada would accept; breaking an election promise, the Liberals said that they would accept only far fewer than the 25,000 they had promised. Of those accepted, many will be privately sponsored and will not need housing.
The former hospital site on Church had been proposed as a resettlement site by the provincial Liberals. Because of the reduced number of refugees, it will not be required.
