Does Canada’s refugee policy discriminate against Syrian Muslims?

CTV News: Profiles of Syrian refugees are presented to Canada by the United Nations, and the government’s decision on who will settle may be based on criteria such as religion. Although information on religious affiliation is not available, critics are concerned that the distribution could be different than the reported percentages of 74% Sunni Muslim, 13% other Muslim groups, 10% Christian, and 3% Druze among the Syrian population. Selection of refugees is ideally based on need, although for private sponsors responsible for 60% of the refugees coming to Canada, it is up to the church or group do decide who to sponsor.
