Canada ‘close to limit’ as refugees flee U.S.

(MONTREAL GAZETTE) — An “increasing wave” of Haitian refugee claimants forced officials to open a temporary shelter in the Olympic Stadium Wednesday while scrambling to keep up with a demand they fear isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

The first busload of asylum seekers arrived at the stadium early Wednesday morning. About 150 beds had been set-up over the weekend.

Francine Dupuis, who oversees PRAIDA, a government-funded program to help seekers get on their feet in Quebec, said the number of refugee claimants in recent months is unprecedented.
