Davies said at the press conference at his office that the CBSA was being deeply unfair, because it “misuses” the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act to deny protection “based solely” on applicants’ links to a political party.
“We are a G7 country,” Davies said. “We are a country of immigrants and refugees. It’s unacceptable that people have to wait five years to have a decision. You can see the destructive impact that this has on families as everything in their life is put on hold.”
