    Amnesty International Brief on Bill C-31 presented to Parliamentary Committee

    DATE:   Monday 7 May 2012

    TIME:   9:50-10:50 AM

    PRESENTERS:
    Alex Neve, Secretary General, Amnesty International Canada (English branch)
    Beatrice Vaugrante, Directrice Générale, Amnistie internationale Canada francophone

    PLACE:
    House of Commons Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration
    Meeting Room C-110, 1 Wellington Street

    Amnesty International will present its concerns with respect to Bill C-31, proposed amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.  The Bill contravenes a number of Canada’s international human rights obligations. Amnesty International is calling for Bill C-31 to be withdrawn.  Any further law reform dealing with human smuggling and refugee protection must only proceed in a manner that conforms fully to Canada’s international human rights obligations.
