As part of the Conservative government’s frantic efforts to appease immigrant communities about Bill C50 and to attempt a positive media spin on the fundamentally unjust and racist Bill C50, Diane Finlay will in Surrey on Tues May 20th.

Finlay has most recently launched a multimillion dollar advertisement campaign. The ads- which contain few details about the actual bill- are running in ‘ethnic’ media only and are the first time that CIC has ever launched an ad campaign to promote legislation that Parliament has not yet even passed yet.

At the same time, the Conservative government has hypocritically and opportunistically made announcements to acknowledge the Komagata Maru, survivors of residential schools, and allocated grant money to commemorate the Ukranian-Canadian internment and the Chinese Head Tax.

It is absolutely crucial that we let Diane Finlay know what we think about Bill C50 and that no matter how hard they try to repackage or sell these amendments, we are not buying into them! No One Is Illegal!
