Refugees, immigrants and Canadians stood shoulder to shoulder in front of the Saskatchewan legislature today in a protest against comments made by Premier Brad Wall. Wall says Ottawa should suspend a plan to bring in 25-thousand Syrian refugees by year's end because of safety and settlement concerns. Maria Aman, who came to Canada as a refugee 22 years ago, says she's worried the impact those comments will have on refugees.
