Canadian sovereignty and US security

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
December 2001
  1. There are currently negotiations and policy discussions on adopting common security arrangements with the USA;
  2. Canada has a tradition of supporting international law and fundamental human rights (and this tradition may be abandoned in the current context).
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Oppose the creation of a common security perimeter and policy with the United States;
  2. Re-iterate to the Canadian government our support for respecting the fundamental rights of refugees and migrants in accordance with international law and our international human rights obligations without discrimination;
  3. Ask the Canadian government to fully protect Canadian sovereignty in immigration and refugee matters and ensure access for all refugee claimants to the Canadian refugee determination system.
