Say “No” to Honorary Doctorate for Canadian Immigration Minister Jason Kenney

“Given the punitive legislation passed under Mr. Kenney’s leadership, its effects on asylum seekers and refugees (particularly Roma refugees); and given that the neo-Nazi, anti-Roma, anti-Semitic, Holocaust-denying Jobbik Party is gaining popularity and power in Hungary – a nation Mr. Kenney claims is safe for Roma – we urge you not to confer an honorary doctorate upon Jason Kenney. Honouring an undeserving politician who denies legitimate refugees would disrespect Roma who died alongside Jews in the Holocaust, make a mockery of the practice of conferring honorary degrees, and bring shame on your institution.”
