Mr. Chair, in my research I came across a Canadian saying, 65 years ago, that none is too many, in reference to the Holocaust. I was so ashamed to find that a Canadian said that, and I am obviously moved by this whole issue.
In studying our history, I'm ashamed as a Canadian of that one part, that they would refuse people, refugees, from the Holocaust and say that none is too many.
I want to put it on the record today that those are not my words. Canada missed a real opportunity there, and the words should have been “Canada wants them all.”
