Ms. Campbell, you state on page 4 of your presentation that 1,557 Canadian offenders have been transferred back to our country, while Canada has returned 127 foreign national offenders from prisons here to their country of citizenship. Are you aware of the reasons for these transfers?
If I look at the number of immigrants welcomed to the country in the last 30 years and if I estimate the number at approximately 30,000 per year—I may be overestimating, or underestimating—, I see that the total is about one million. And only 127 people have asked to be returned to their country of citizenship. That intrigues me.
Could it be that they are fed too well in our prisons? I'm just asking. Do they enjoy more freedoms in our prisons then they would in their own country? I'm interesting in getting at the truth.
