NDP hails end of ‘odious’ immigration bill
The last legislative fight of the spring session in the Commons appears to have been won by the New Democrats.
The decision by the House to adjourn for the summer a few days early nixed Conservative efforts to amend a private member’s bill to strip Canadian citizenship from dual nationals convicted of terrorist acts.
“We got the end of an odious bill in immigration that would have deprived Canadians of their citizenship illegally but it would have had to have been fought before the courts,” NDP Leader Tom Mulcair said Wednesday in celebrating the amendment’s demise. “It was disgusting what (Immigration Minister) Jason Kenney was trying to do in that bill.”
Conservative MP Devinder Shory’s bill originally had two aims. It would have accelerated citizenship for the handful of permanent residents who serve in the Canadian Forces, while stripping it from dual nationals who committed acts of war against the Canadian military.
For the last week of the sitting, NDP MPs used stalling tactics at committee to prevent the Conservatives from being granted extra time to study the bill.
