Despite Canada’s and Quebec’s history of welcoming refugees, Régine Laurent deplores the fact that the country’s bureaucracy is unable to respond to the requests of Ukrainians who have fled the war.

“Hearing that embassies are closed after five, that they are closed on weekends, that they play Tchaikovsky, we really like Tchaikovsky, but that’s not what people need, emails automated, it does not have good blood”, she is indignant.

She also believes that these oddities can damage Canada’s reputation on the international scene.

“At some point, too much talk kills the action,” she points out.

She takes the example of Poland, which had no choice but to take in hundreds of thousands of refugees in a very short period of time.

She believes that we should take inspiration from the Poles, who adapted overnight, to relax the rules and welcome Ukrainians.
