🍁 CDN: Bill C-51 Court Rules That Policy Discriminates

By Anna Mehler Paperny, July 23, 2015. Global News.

The federal government’s refugee policy is discriminatory and violates the Charter rights of refugee applicants from certain countries, a federal court ruled Thursday.

Denying certain refugee applicants the right to appeal based on their country of origin violates Charter equality provisions, Justice Keith Boswell ruled.

The distinction drawn between the procedural advantage now accorded to non-[Designated Country of Origin] refugee claimants and the disadvantage suffered by DCO refugee claimants … is discriminatory on its face,” the ruling reads.

It also serves to further marginalize, prejudice, and stereotype refugee claimants from DCO countries which are generally considered safe and ‘non-refugee producing.’

Moreover, it perpetuates a stereotype that refugee claimants from DCO countries are somehow queue-jumpers or “bogus” claimants who only come here to take advantage of Canada’s refugee system and its generosity.”

The ruling is a victory for refugee applicants from 42 countries, who now have the chance to appeal rulings they couldn’t before.

Regardless of what is happening with a possible injunction application, I urge every person to call the Premier’s office in the morning, telling her she has to get her administration working overtime to get rid of tent city and under no circumstances to move this horror story a block away into Mt. Edwards where we’ll then have a PERMANENT tent city indoors, with all the same shit going on every day and night!
