17
November 2002
Whereas: 
  1. The IRPA eliminates the right to a hearing before the IRB for anyone who is sentenced to two years or more in jail for a crime committed in Canada, regardless of his or her personal circumstances;
  2. The diversity of circumstances of those affected by this provision encompasses cases where compassion and equity should be extended;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Solicit statements and submissions from those affected by this policy both through member agencies and the community at large;
  2. Advocate for the creation of an equitable power in a decision-maker independent of CIC to make a determination as to the propriety of removal from Canada of refugees and permanent residents.
