Jenny in the House: Parents/Grandparents Sponsorship

On February 4, 2019 Jenny rose in Question Period to demand answers regarding the newest failure of the Liberal government on the Parents/Grandparents Sponsorship program:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the online application process for the parents and grandparents sponsorship program was a farce. Grace had tried to apply for four years, but the link did not even show up for her on the IRCC website, despite her upgrading her Internet. Yuna felt cheated, as no one told her about the game rules. She opened the form at 9:01. It said she had 10 minutes to complete it. She finished it in three. Then she went over it to make sure everything was correct, but after seven minutes, she was kicked out. Later she heard that she only had to fill out the name and the contact information to be accepted.

How is this a fair process? What will it take for the minister to do the right thing and eliminate the cap?"
