Refugee Claimants: Fire and Emailed Statement

refugee claimants: They said the fire was extinguished quickly and no one was injured, according to CTV. They said they believe the fire was started intentionally, but they have not spelled out a possible motive. Police said they are looking for a suspect after a fire was started on the third floor of the Radisson Hotel Toronto East on the night of Oct. 2. There is no indication at this time that the arson is an attack on the refugees staying at the hotel, police said in an emailed statement. He said he's worried the arson could be linked to misinformation spreading about the refugee claimants on the hotel's Trip Advisor page, along with videos that have been posted online. But Mario Calla, the executive director of COSTI Immigrant Services, which has been connecting refugee claimants with services in Toronto, said he believes the fire targeted the asylum seekers.
