Canada's Official Opposition NDP party today (Nov 1) presented a three point motion calling on the Canadian government to play a more active role in dealing with the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

The motion, presented in the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, called for support for peace-building efforts in Syria, the provision of emergency humanitarian assistance to deal with the refugee crisis in Syria, and the motion called on a speeding up of the process of family reunification of Syrians with family members in Canada.

RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to Paul Dewar, the MP who presented the motion. He is the Foreign Affairs Critic for the Official Opposition NDP.
