Editor’s note: Excellent article looking at the implications of Kenney’s quest to strip “fraudulent” immigrants of citizenship.
“Immigration and Citizenship Minister Jason Kenney announced yesterday his office is investigating 11,000 people “potentially implicated in lying to apply for citizenship or maintain permanent resident status.”
To start with, CIC has launched proceedings to revoke citizenship from 3,100 immigrants.
“Canadian citizenship is not for sale,” says Kenney. Nor should it be.
On the other hand, the taking of citizenship from some Canadians should cause the rest of us to ponder any other motives by the government. At minimum, we should demand accountability and transparency from authorities in charge.
Five questions, then, for Jason Kenney and the Harper government as they expand their vigorous campaign against immigration fraud.”
