Parliament Video: Jenny in Question Period: Thousands of Canadians demand: Don't put asylum seekers' lives at risk!

I rose on Question Period on May 8, 2019, to ask the following question: 


"Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister is creating two classes of refugees in Bill C-97 to pander to the right. Facing backlash, the government emailed Liberal MPs saying that no asylum seekers would be at risk. The Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers and Amnesty International were clear: that is not true.

The Liberals are desperate for a fix but experts were explicit: there is no fix. Anyone pretending the Liberal proposal is the same as the independent work of the IRB is fooling themselves.

Will the Prime Minister do what thousands of Canadians are demanding and withdraw these dangerous provisions?"

Minister of Foreign Affairs Melanie Joly responded by saying that “too many” children and women have lost their lives, adding that 130 Canadians were able to cross the Rafah border on Sunday night.
