LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Canada should welcome migrants

Reader supports online petition to welcome people from the migrant caravan to Canada

To the editor,

Re: Nanaimo woman asks feds to grant asylum to caravan, Nov. 15.

Thank you to Heidi Schlosar for starting this online petition to welcome people from the migrant caravan to Canada. Refugees and economic migrants built this country, in case we forget, and will continue to do so into the future, given the tools and resources they need. Canada needs more refugees and immigrants and we are a welcoming, diverse society.

I see that more than 10,000 people have already signed the petition – thank you for bringing attention to the issue, Ms. Schlosar.

Joy Dube, Nanaimo
