Canada should welcome those who flee Japan

It may well be that many Japanese citizens will decide to leave Japan following this terrible and overwhelming disaster, choosing to live out their lives in a safer place.

If so, what a great chance to encourage fast tracking them to Canada as immigrants. Here we have intelligent, highly educated people who would come here without any religious dogma so ingrained into them that they can not easily assimilate into our life style.

They would welcome our secular laws and take an active interest in our democratic process. As to their character, how many of us would stand so stoic under the conditions they now find themselves in?
