We, the undersigned, thank Jason Kenney for his efforts to streamline benefits afforded to refugees claimants under the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) and bring them in line with the benefits received by tax-paying Canadians, including new Canadians.
We also thank you for asking us to thank you for doing it.
These recent actions have confirmed our decision to vote for (and/or donate to) any other progressive candidate in your riding during the next Federal election.
We believe your 'efforts' are a shameless political act designed to take advantage of outdated and ill-informed stereotypes about immigrant populations.
Your views of new Canadians as 'smuggled migrants' and 'bogus asylum claimants' do not reflect the new Canadian populations we know.
Thank you again, Minister Kenney, for reminding us that Canada deserves an Immigration Minister who advocates FOR, not against the new citizens who come to Canada seeking a better future. We look forward to picking your replacement in 2015.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney thinks we should thank him for his hard work on denying benefits to new Canadians. (http://bit.ly/L4IQau)
We totally agree. But not for the reasons he wants.
