Canadian ruling party offers asylum for North Korean refugees

In response to a request from the Korean community, Canada’s Conservative Party is proposing a plan to help resettle stranded North Korean refugees.

Minister of Multiculturalism Jason Kenney said a re-elected Conservative government would develop specialized immigration measures for North Korean refugees stuck in countries in Southeast Asia.

“Our Conservative government’s openness to North Korean refugees is in keeping with Canada’s best humanitarian traditions,” Kenney said.

The Conservatives added that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been clear in condemning North Korea for their “atrocious human rights record” and “belligerent actions at the United Nations.”
