Under mounting pressure from opposition M-Ps, the House of Commons immigration committee will meet at least two times before early August – to study the issue of asylum seekers.
Committee members agreed today in a rare summer session to review the government’s response to the irregular border crossers – inviting testimony from Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.
Liberal M-P and committee chairman Rob Oliphant – following a testy two-hour meeting, declared that the committee decided to ensure that Canadians hear the truth.
