Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Mixed reception for refugees By RICHARD JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Providing trans- portation arrangements are firmed up and exit permits is- sued in Uganda, the Manpower and Immigration Department expects the first of several thousand refugee Asians to ar- rive in Canada williin two r. They face a mixed reception, with one segment of Canadians hostile to the mass influx and another receptive to it. As of latest count Canadian Immigration officers in Kam- pala report COO of Ugan dan Asians who have applied for Canadian entry have been granted visas. Officials on the scene esli mate about another Asians have collected appli calion forms. Mail for and against the moss migration is described bj the department as but it professes not to know on which for or it is weighed. There have been reports, sal QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Denial Mechanic Capitol Furnilun Btfg. PHONE 328-7684 m originated with some I in to the Immigration Division mt offices, that for cv- asking "how can we have ovcrnment offii ry Canadian welcoming the In- ow of could run s high as have jeen 50 ngainst it. The department, neither con- irming or denying this, has aid no honest assessment can 50 made of public opinion until he "very voluminous1' mail las been analyzed. But it seems to shape up this way: More Individuals seem op- posed to the migration. But offsetting this has been the number of organizations supporing it. The individuals have objeced on grounds that unemployment running as high it is at over six per cent rules against a mass import of foreign job- hunters. They have protested, too, on grounds of race .and color. There have also been special- ized objections of the sort of "fine, let 'em in, but not any of those in my trade or occupa- tion." But on the other side of the line dividing public opinion are the organizations such as the Red Cross, the Inter-faith Com- mittee of the churches and the Quebec provincial government. These like similar organ- izations have written and called The Immigration Division It- self doesn't really know what to expect. It wonders how many Asians will come with capital. Will President Idi Amin who says he received his expulsion in- spiration from God, allow the Asians to bring out their money? And which airline is going to fly them in, for hcrw much, and who will be paying the bill? What encourages the Immi- gration Division to hope the re- ception will be warmer for the Asians than some of the mail might indicate, has been the re- sponse of "some" individuals. Like the farmer in Alberta who wrote "send a few out icre; they can work the farm or even rent it." Catch Is, not many of the Asians are farmers. Most are Businessmen, professionals and enterpreneurs. The Immigration Division Is counting on the big Asian com- munity, already well estab- lished in Canada, to help out. More than East Indians arc living, working and build- ing a life for themselves in To- ronto alone. These people, says the Imml gration Department, can help in countless ways. With money housing, other forms of help and even advice as to where to find a job, how to get to the post office, where to check the baby if working, even when and how to shop.
