The human cost of Jason Kenney's refugee health cuts

Fleeing the genocidal war in Sri Lanka, 492 Tamils arrived in Canada aboard the MV Sun Sea in August 2010. The response of public safety minister Vic Toews was not to deplore the perpetrators of the massacre against the Tamils, but rather to imprison the traumatized victims to "ensure our refugee system is not hijacked by criminals or terrorists."
