In Committee from the House of Commons - Citizenship and Immigration - April 16, 2013


Citizenship and Immigration

MPs continue their discussion of a Conservative private member's bill (C-425) that seeks to strip the citizenship of dual nationals if they commit acts of war against the Canadian Forces. Devinder Shory's bill will also allow permanent residents to gain Canadian citizenship one year earlier if they agree to serve three years in the Canadian Forces.

UBC law professor Catherine Dauvergne (as an individual), Air India 182 Victims Families Association chair Bal Gupta, and Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers president Lorne Waldman present their views of the proposed legislation during the first part of the meeting.

Committee hear from University of Toronto law professor Audrey Macklin (as an individual), Centre for Immigration Policy Reform spokesperson Martin Collacott, and Canadian Coalition Against Terror representatives Sheryl Saperia and Maureen Basnicki in the second panel.
