Selecting Refugees

There are about 5 million Syrian refugees seeking asylum and millions more who would be if they could do it safely. Canada took in 25,000 refugees. Even this is a quite a stretch given how tight housing in Canada, especially low cost housing for large families. We are cherry picking the best 1 in 200 applicants.

One of the families we selected had 13 members. I would not have selected them. Why?

What other criteria might you use?
