Where, oh where will the money come from?

How does the government (federal and provincial) plan on playing for these refugees that are "supposedly" on their way? This province has a unemployment rate of eight percent. Many residents are leaving this fine province because they can not find work. Those leaving are both skilled and professional so the argument that the new refugees will help grow the economy and jobs will not work. This province is more than $14 billion in debt. Housing is unaffordable to a great many Nova Scotians as it is, and a good paying job is impossible to find. So many Nova Scotians live in poverty, live with mental illness and addiction problems as is. Why not fix what is already broken here first before you blow a shit ton on money that you don't have on refugees that will be a financial drain on an already drained province? This is not a black, white, brown, yellow problem; this is a bitch about remembering who is already here and in need of help as it is. I heard on the radio the other day that all these refugees from Syria would be jumping ahead of thousands of refugees that have waited years on the list to come to Canada. Why is one refugee more important than another? There are refugees already here in Nova Scotia metaphorically and figuratively speaking. Wake up and smell the roses, government. —Tired of Watching Canada Ignore Canadians
