The B.C. Civil Liberties Association lawyers and Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers are taking the federal government to court (pro bono) to challenge Bill-24.
End Second-Class Citizenship.
Critics of the bill see it as another vindictive action by Harper which particularly targets Omar. The bill (came into law in June) allows the government to revoke Canadian citizenship from dual citizens and those who are eligible for dual citizenship. Since Omar’s father was Egyptian, he is eligible. The bill creates a 2 tier Canadian citizenship system and needs strong opposition. Please sign the BCCLA petition and contribute to their fundraising campaign. They have supported various speaking events we have had in Vancouver for Omar and would appreciate our help!
