How the proposed new Refugee Exclusion Act – Bill C-31 – affects our Communities & How to Stop It. A Community Forum and Call to Action by No One Is Illegal Toronto & the South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario Thursday, APRIL 12, 6pm Friends Meeting House 60 Lowther Avenue (just 1 block north from St.George Station – Bedford Exit). Facebook: http://on.fb.me/GOgEs4 On February 16th, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney tabled Bill C-31 – an immigration omnibus bill now widely condemned as the Refugee Exclusion Act. An amalgamation of some of the most cruel elements of previous bills, C-31 is a drastic and draconian attack on immigrants that introduces measures that jail refugees, establishes an unjust two-tier asylum system, and ends Permanent Residence in Canada as we know it. We cannot let this happen. Join No One Is Illegal – Toronto and The South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario for a panel discussion about Bill C-31 and be part of the growing tide of resistance to stop Bill C-31 from becoming law. Join the fight back! Speakers TBA. Light refreshments will be served. Child-care Provided. Space is wheelchair accessible.
