Ukrainian Canadians Criticize Conservative Government for Failure to
Enforce Immigration Laws
For Immediate Release – Ottawa (28 September 2010)
The Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association (UCCLA) today
called upon the Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen
Harper to take immediate steps to remove all veterans of the notorious
Soviet secret police, the KGB, from Canada, initiating a national
postcard campaign to get its message out.
UCCLA’s chairman, Dr. Lubomyr Luciuk, said: "No one who served in any
capacity with the KGB is eligible to enter or to remain here. That’s
Canadian law. Public confidence in the integrity and fairness of our
system of immigration control is being undermined by the failure of
this government to remove KGB men known to be in Canada. We expected
the Conservatives, who claim anti-Communist credentials and a law &
order agenda, to at least enforce existing immigration laws. But they
haven’t. That’s scandalous. Canada does not need KGB men as citizens.
All of them should be returned whence they came, immediately."
