Can we safely screen 25,000 refugees?

Toronto Pearson International Airport processed 38 million passengers last year. 23 million international and transborder, so that's over 11 million arrivals per year, or 32,000 per day, all being security screened by CBSA. That's one airport. Every single day. Sure, screening refugees is more in depth, but it's a drop in the ocean compared to the number of people entering Canada every year. The suggestion that our ability to conduct security screenings is a legitimate reason for turning away 25,000 people fleeing a brutal war zone is a smoke-screen.
