Housing needed for Syrian refugees

As the first Syrian refugees arrive in Canada, local groups are ramping up their preparation efforts.

Nelson City Councillor Valerie Warmington is on the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Refugee Task Force.

Warmington says a meeting of interested parties is planned Wednesday to compare notes.

A variety of fundraisers are also underway.
