The Minister Writes

In recent weeks there have been a number of inaccurate reports concerning government services available to Indochinese and other refugees. The nature and extent of the misinformation currently circulating on this subject have compelled me to address the issue per- sonally. While we all recognize that it is extremely difficult to correct any media misinterpretation of the facts, I am con- cerned that the media coverage may distort the public understanding of the work of many refugee organizations; such coverage fails to reflect the broad range of joint government/voluntary sector projects and programs which are either proposed or underway to assist refugees in Canada. I also wanted to ensure that you had received informa- tion about some recent initiatives in the refugee resettlement field.
