Jenny in the House: Will the Gov immediately suspend the Safe 3rd Country Agree't with the US?

On February 8, 2017, Jenny stood to ask this question: 

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister claims he is a defender of human rights, yet he will not speak up against Trump's racist ban. What is worse, once rejected by the U.S., those refugees cannot make a claim in Canada because of the safe third country agreement. So much for #welcometoCanada. Canadians no longer have confidence that the U.S. is a safe haven for refugees. If we do not suspend the agreement, Canada will be complicit in this discriminatory ban.

Will the government immediately suspend the safe third country agreement, yes or no?"
