Mr. Speaker, today the auditor general in her report to parliament repeats what has been said for many years about immigration, that is, the government's lack of attention to the report.
Section 12.70 states:
In 1997 we recommended that Citizenship and Immigration Canada review the mechanisms used in applying the eligibility criteria set out in the Immigration Act.
For undocumented claims, the report states that:
Under Bill C-11, the decision on eligibility must be made within three working days--
Why does Bill C-42 propose changes to the 72 hour requirement?
The auditor general is having a difficult time assessing this recommendation of Bill C-11.
The auditor general also found that the safe third country provision made in the 1997 report was totally ignored by the government. So much for listening to the Auditor General of Canada.
