Parliament Video: Jenny in QP: Thousands of Canadians demand: Don't put asylum seekers' lives at risk!

On May 09, 2019, Jenny rose to ask in Question period: Will the Prime Minister do what thousands of Canadians are demanding and withdraw these dangerous provisions in Bill C-97 that put asylum seekers' lives at risk?

"Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister is creating two classes of refugees in Bill C-97 to pander to the right. Facing backlash, the government emailed Liberal MPs saying that no asylum seekers would be at risk. The Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers and Amnesty International were clear: That is not true.

The Liberals are desperate for a fix, but experts were explicit: There is no fix. Any people pretending the Liberal proposal is the same as the independent work of the IRB are fooling themselves.

Will the Prime Minister do what thousands of Canadians are demanding and withdraw these dangerous provisions?"
