A Television Journalist Destroyed Canada's Immigration Minister Over Syrian Refugees
Put away your talking points, folks. Rosemary Barton is not having it.
Canada's citizenship and immigration minister got a roasting on live television Wednesday over the Conservative government's response to the Syrian refugee crisis.
The issue of Syrian refugees became a hot topic on the campaign trail Wednesday after a photo of a dead Syrian toddler washed up on a Turkish beach made global headlines.
Barton demanded Alexander clarify why the government is relying more on the private sector to take in refugees from war-torn Syria rather than leading the effort.
Alexander, exasperated, asked her why she was persisting in that line of questioning.
