Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Will the Government prohibit immigration detention of children?

On February 23, 2017, Jenny stood to ask this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, this morning, the University of Toronto's international human rights program released a shocking report on Canada's practice of detaining children in medium-security immigration jails. According to the report, Canada detains almost 250 children annually. Some of these children are even held in solitary confinement, in breach of international law and the charter. This is a disgrace.

Will the government finally amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and prohibit the detention of children?"
