It'll be interesting to see what Trudeau's MaliMuslim Refugee program will  be like and if it supercedes his Syrian one because that one is out of photo ops.
At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child – miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.

I thought I read something about trying to get the Yazidis from Iraq here and that there are teams on the ground currently. Then again I remember it being a more Conservatibe party idea but still plenty of photo op opportunity if they manage to get them here.

Some work being done (mostly by groups, as far as I can see quickly, not gov't yet).  As for Team Blue, they had their chance ...

... so we'll see if Team Red does any better.

The Yazidis don't fit neatly into any of the "identity" categories that modern "Progressives" have constructed, so they will be overlooked. It is also questionable if the Yazidis would be reliable Liberal Party voters (don't forget the reaction of Yazidi women to being enslaved by ISIS was to form an all woman battalion to go into battle and seek revenge. Look up the "Sun Women" [a rather poor translation of the group]).

I also notice that Christians from the region are getting short shift even though they are the targets of persecution from virtually all the other governments and groups in the region.
Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

Shh, Christians don't deserve support from "Progressives" because, you know.........they're just Christians.

They're not JUST Christians.  They're nasty.  They must be.  They have so much and have been so successful. QED.

Not Muslim and don't fit into a nicely defined category. They are also very traditionalist, they are not exactly liberal minded and even under normal conditions they would struggle to fit in here.

Muslim isn't really a very nicely defined category either.
