    Quebec Relaxes Immigration Rules for Haitians

    The Quebec government is changing immigration rules to allow more people to bring in family members from Haiti, in the wake of that country's devastating earthquake in January.

    A new program will allow Quebecers to sponsor their own children over the age of 21 as well as brothers, sisters, those siblings' spouses and their children, said Quebec Immigration Minister Yolande James.

    Previously, Quebecers had only been allowed to sponsor parents, grandparents and children under the age of 21.

    Quebec says it will accept a maximum of 3,000 new immigrants under the special measures. However, the province will not take in more immigrants overall than it had planned for the year, the minister said Wednesday .

    "We wanted to be responsible," she said. "From the moment we open it to more than that, we won't be able to integrate them [into society] and we don't help anyone by doing that. Quebec alone isn't able to help all of Haiti."

    Haiti has a reputation for one of the most corrupt government in the western hemisphere. Example: The nation is the poorest in the west, yet their president lives in a palace.

    When people 'come up for air' in the frenzied rush for giving aid, I want to have an investigation into how well its been used.
