Immigration officials in Nova Scotia say preparations continue for the arrival of the first of the 25-thousand Syrian refugees that Ottawa has agreed to resettle by the end of February. But they say Nova Scotia doesn't have an exact indication of how many of the 10-thousand refugees that are to arrive in Canada by the end of December will be coming to the province. Gerry Mills of the Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia says the early estimate is about 20 to 30 families who have been privately sponsored by churches and other community groups across the province. (Mills says there are some 60 sponsorship groups involved across the province with about half that number located in the Halifax area.)
