Criminalizing refugees: The case against Bill C-31

2010 Pilgrimage to Freedom march, organized by Justicia for Migrant Workers. (Photo: http://3907.cupe.ca)

Introduced under another signature defensive title, the Conservatives' Bill C-31: "Protecting Canada’s Immigration System Act", combines exclusionary refugee measures from Bill C-4 (“Protecting Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada’s Immigration System”) and Bill C-11 (“Balanced Refugee Reform Act”). Both C-4 and -11 were previously proposed but rejected by opposition while the Conservatives were a minority in Parliament.
