On Saturday May 5 - Toronto’s gay community plans a candlelight vigil to raise its concerns over the proposed anti-refugee Bill C31 @ Cawthra Park
The new proposed law (Protecting Canada’s Immigration System Act,) will have a definite impact, particularly on refugees from the LGBT community.
Canada recognizes persecution based on sexual orientation as grounds for asylum.
The proposed Bill in its current form will affect permanent residents already settle, new residents in process, refugees in process, and new refugees arriving to Canada. (Expected to be law by June 29th.)
Editorial: Toronto Star
One of the guest speakers tonight will be Toronto lawyer El Farouk Khaki, a human rights activist. We need your help to gather together, bring your notes, ideas, words, make a speech tell how Bill C31 will affect the people you care about and love..Board
