What is the impact of the Minister of Justice's recent comments on the European Union on the Canadian-wide refugee crisis?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Dunova v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2010 FC 438 (CanLII):

In this overall context, the spontaneous comments made by the Minister while travelling in Europe were less potentially problematic than had they been made in a different context or as statements of official policy (Pelletier v. Canada (Attorney General), 2008 FCA 1, at para. 63).
