$28,000 per refugee

According to figures quoted by the National Post newspaper this morning the new Federal Program for refugees will cost approximately $700,000,000 by 2017.

This is to cover the cost of bringing 25,000 refugees , mostly Syrian , one assumes, to this country.

Simple math shows this to cost $28,000 per refugee.

Given that this is what the Government is now projecting and knowing that Government projections rarely go down it is not a stretch to say this program will cost over $30,000 per refugee.
