Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Calling on the Prime Minister to stand up for Canadian principles

On February 14, 2017, Jenny stood to call on the Prime Minister:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Prime Minister refused to denounce Trump's travel ban apparently because he was in Washington, yet no matter where he has been, the Prime Minister has actually never criticized Trump's racist immigration policies, even though they are having a direct impact on Canadians.

From Vietnam to Iraq, Canada has a proud history of standing up to the U.S. on issues of principle.

Now that he is back safe and sound on Canadian soil, will the Prime Minister summon the courage to denounce Trump's immigration policies?"
