Some 5,000 Canadians in violence-wracked Syria should get out of the country as quickly as possible, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird warned Thursday.
At an Ottawa news conference, Baird said 10 months of political rioting and harsh government response was coming to a head, Postmedia News reported.
“The time to leave Syria is now,” Baird said. “The writing on the wall could not be more clear.”
