Initial planeload of Syria refugees to arrive in Toronto on Thursday

OTTAWA The 1st planeload of Syrian refugees from camps in Jordan and Lebanon will arrive in Canada on Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated on Wednesday.

Yet another planeload will arrive in Montreal on Saturday, he told legislators.

The Liberal government plans to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year and a additional 15,000 by the finish of February. Officials say the refugees on the first planeloads will be largely or completely privately sponsored.
