It is not contradictory, if the hon. member would just listen to the explanation. It is based on the determination of the white paper to remove discrimination as between different countries, which has not been the situation heretofore.
Getting back to the question of Mr. Gruszka, he came to Canada as a visitor. I would advise the hon. member that my information is that his relatives indicated an interest in bringing him here as a visitor. He came here as a visitor, he was admitted in good faith as a visitor last November, and his wife and children are still in Poland. He then made application for landing, to stay here permanently, and it was refused. The minister has received representations, no doubt including those of the hon. member, and is giving consideration to them at the present time.
