Jenny in the House: The Safe Third Country Agreement must be suspended

On February 13, 2017, Jenny stood to speak of the Safe Third Country Agreement:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, more and more people are demanding that Canada end the safe third country agreement with the U.S. Immigration lawyers are now saying that many refugee applications have to be rejected because of this agreement. The minister continues to turn a blind eye and be complicit to the reality these refugees are facing.

On Friday in this House the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness admitted, “Obviously, a number of these issues are emerging”.

If the government admits there is a problem, why will it not do anything about it?"
