On February 16th, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney tabled Bill C-31 - an immigration omnibus bill now widely condemned as the Refugee Exclusion Act. An amalgamation of some of the most cruel elements of previous bills, C-31 is a drastic and draconian attack on immigrants that introduces measures that jail refugees, establishes an unjust two-tier asylum system, and ends Permanent Residence in Canada as we know it.

We cannot let this happen.

Join No One Is Illegal - Toronto and The South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario for a panel discussion about Bill C-31 and be part of the growing tide of resistance to stop Bill C-31 from becoming law.

Join the fight back!

Speakers TBA. Light refreshments will be served. Child-care Provided.
Space is wheelchair accessible.


Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
