HM Minister of Citizenship and Immigration is doing an amazing job. His immigration reforms have been long overdue. I once again praise Jason Kenney. The longer Calgary MP Jason Kenney is Immigration minister and the more reforms he makes to Canada’s immigration and refugee laws, the more obvious it becomes how truly lax the rules were under the former Liberal government. Wednesday, Kenney introduced a bill – the Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act – that is so sensible it will probably surprise most Canadians that the new policy isn’t already the law of the land. Kenney moved to close a major loophole that has for years permitted recent immigrants to commit crimes in Canada before they become citizens, but remain here nonetheless.
