A reminder to all those who would like to attend this event that there is only 1 day left to take advantage of the early bird pricing for tickets.
Also considering registering for their Immigration Symposium which is running the same day at the Crowne Plaza in Ottawa. Do not delay as tickets are selling fast!
If Canadians don’t understand how the following account violates the principle of equality before the law, this is evidence of how difficult it is to see offences when you live in the midst of them. It is also a challenge to Christians to become immersed in the Bible and Biblical worldview teaching in order to be able to understand and criticize our culture effectively and responsibly.
This letter by CCPS President Joseph Ben-Ami expresses serious concerns about Canada’s immigration situation. One might be tempted to call it an immigration system, but as Mr. Ben-Ami notes, it’s not really a system, it’s a collection of policies that lack unity and coherence. It is also a fundraising letter. Consider how you might support CCPS if you share their concerns over immigration in Canada.
Canadian Centre for Policy Studies – August 14, 2010
For Immediate Release
OTTAWA – The arrival of a shipload of Tamil migrants off Canada’s west coast intending to claim refugee status exposes how little progress the Conservative government has made in fixing this country’s badly broken refugee system since coming to office in 2006.
The Canadian Centre for Policy Studies has just released Human Rights as a dangerous ideological abstraction. This report does not simply discuss some of the absurdities that have been advanced in the name of human rights, though it does that. Much more importantly, it exposes the incoherence of human rights theory and the incompatibility of human rights – as they seem to be understood and practiced – with the Judeo-Christian democratic tradition of Canada and the British Commonwealth.
