Canadian Council for Refugees v. Canada (Immigration, Refugees and citizenship) - Federal Court
Canada-US Safe 3rd Country Agreement unconstitutional. "The penalization of the simple act of making a refugee claim is not in keeping with the spirit or the intention of the STCA or the foundational Conventions upon which it was built."

WOW. A federal decision has been made in CCR (Refugees) v. Canada 🇨🇦 This is the fight over the Safe Third Country Agreement. Court's judgment: The United States 🇺🇸 is NOT a safe third country. STCA violates sec 7 of 🇨🇦 Charter of Rights & Freedoms.
Very important federal court decision issued today finds that #Canada's enforcement of the Safe Third Country Agreement with the US violates Section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, "the right to life, liberty and security of the person"
