Haiti thanks Canada for accepting refugees from US

According to an estimate by the union representing Canadian customs workers, between 450 and 700 people are crossing the border every week.

The CBC reports that approximately 1,174 asylum seekers crossed into Quebec in July 2017 - that's up from the 180 people who crossed seeking asylum in July 2016.
