Last night Mr. Ivriniel and I went to a meeting organized by the local Ministerial to explore how to sponsor Syrian refugees in our community. An umbrella group has now been set up, the Halton Hills Coalition for Refugees, with the goal of creating private sponsorship groups that can support each other. Mr. Ivriniel and I intend on joining a group.

Then today, Mr. Ivriniel was in a local restaurant and got talking to someone who seemed to be a potential client for his IT company. The potential client thought he had 10 to 15 days of work for Mr .I. It was going great, until the conversation turned to the refugee crisis.

Then Potential client said “These people just keep making up excuses to come as refugees. Just like the Jews made up propaganda about death camps for sympathy.”

Mr. Ivriniel was so shocked he just said “I can’t be part of this conversation.” and walked away.

Work’s been thin lately, so he hates to have given up the work, but he says he couldn’t have lived with himself if he had taken the job.
