June 1, 1993 (34th Parliament, 3rd Session)


Daniel James Macdonnell Heap

New Democratic Party

Mr. Dan Heap (Trinity-Spadina):

Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Employment and Immigration.
As he no doubt knows the group headed by Sister Mary Jo Leddy at a press conference yesterday in Toronto has thanked the Prime Minister for his encouraging responses, through June Callwood, concerning 23 rejected refugee claimants now facing deportation. The group has sent the Prime Minister evidence that these are real refugees in danger of persecution in their homeland.
Will the minister assure this House that he will conduct a special review of these cases before July 1, 1993, examining new evidence on those cases and evidence of inadequate or insensitive processing of those cases?
