Congrats to me I am a grandad again

9 lb. Max was born last night, so I am a grandad for the fourth and apparently last time. Got to go in a birthing suite at least until all the action started. They do not have expectant father and grandfather rooms anymore and you not only have to leave the hospital to have a smoke, you have to leave the hospital property, so I ended up spending half my time on the street smoking with emergency patients, on crutches and sitting in wheel chairs that I assumed they left there for old expectant grandfathers.

But all are fine and my daughter is beautiful and guess what Max looks like his grandad, except for the moustache, beard and sunglasses.

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
