Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Citizenship and Immigration

Mr. Speaker, in January 2008, the Minister of Immigration announced that Canada would be the first country in the world to withdraw from the Durban review process. Since then, much of the world has followed Canada’s lead, including Italy, Australia, New Zealand, the Obama administration in the United States and Israel.
Yesterday’s hate-filled speech by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the conference would seem to vindicate the Conservative position on Durban. Will the Minister of Immigration describe the government’s policy on the Durban process?
