Good Move...

...by Jason Kenney:

Canada's new refugee rules come into effect on Dec. 15
"Beginning on Dec. 15, foreign nationals making refugee claims in Canada will be divided into two groups, depending upon whether their country of origin is considered a genuine refugee producing country."
[---]
"The laws allow the government to create a class of designated countries of origin (DCO). Countries that will be designated under this category will be those that are democratic, that respect human rights, and that offer state protection to its citizens. Countries in the European Union and the United States are expected to be placed into this category. Refugee claimants who come from DCOs will be processed differently than those who make claims from legitimate refugee producing countries."
It's about time and that's exactly what I thought should be done.

Sorry, Dave. You'll have to come up with some other reason, for the time being anyway.
