Jenny in the House: Yet another Canadian racially profiled and turned away at the Canada - US border

On February 13, 2017, Jenny stood to ask this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, last week, another Canadian came forward about being turned away at the U.S. border. Immediately following Trump's discriminatory ban, the Liberal government promised no Canadians would be affected. This is clearly not the case. Canadians are being stopped, interrogated, and turned away at the U.S. border, even though they have valid Canadian passports. Let us just call it for what it is, racial profiling, and it is outrageous.

What is the minister doing to guarantee that Canadians are not being treated this way at the U.S. border?"
