I am pleased My HM Minister of Citizen and immigration's changes to refugee rules. We now get refugees from almost every country on earth. We need to get real refugees.Good work Jason!!! OTTAWA — Calling Canada’s asylum system “broken,” the federal Conservative government has introduced legislation that will deport “bogus” refugee claimants quicker, clamp down on human smugglers and require certain visa holders to turn over biometric data. Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, who introduced the Protecting Canada’s Immigration Act on Thursday, billed the new law as an improvement to the Balanced Refugee Reform Act adopted during the previous minority Parliament but not implemented because of a lack of support from opposition parties. It also swallows the government’s human smuggling bill tabled in June and moves forward on a biometrics plan a Commons committee only recently sat down to consider Under Bill C-31, claims from “safe” democratic countries would be processed within 45 days instead of the 1,000 days it currently takes, or the 171 days it’s expected to take under the Balanced Refugee Reform Act.
