Jason Kenney in Vancouver! Monday March 14 10 am. CIC Building. Location: 877 Expo Blvd, just behind BC Place – walk over from Tinseltown, very close to Stadium Skytrain station&  Costco

The War Resisters Campaign has called a picket to oppose the governments position on deporting war resisters. No One Is Illegal calls on our allies to join this picket and to oppose all deportations and detentions. Under Kenney, deportations have increased, while the number of people accepted as refugees and sponsored family members have drastically dropped. Instead, Kenney has increased the number of temporary workers who are constantly exploited for their labour. This month it was revealed that Kenney boosted spending in his office by 35%, with much of the money being used for advertising campaigns targeted at so-called ethnic voters.

Kenney is also a staunch supporter of imperialism, speaking out against Israeli Apartheid Week organizing and pulling Canada out of the Durban World Conference Against Racism. He introduced a citizenship guide that omits the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) communities; defended Quebec Bill C-94 that discriminates against women who wear the niqab; and stated that immigrants are not integrating well into (colonial) Canada.

The People v. Kenney

Right to stay, and to Return
We are many.
