Jason Kenney faces legal uprising over Conrad Black visa; Harper defends Kenney

August 3, 2012

[The Globe and Mail Reports]

More than 80 lawyers have signed an open letter to Immigration Minister Jason Kenney challenging his insistence he played no role in granting Conrad Black a permit to live in this country even before the U.K. citizen had finished his jail time in Florida.

The lawyers, all immigration specialists, say they believe Mr. Kenney must have had some part in the controversial decision to grant a temporary resident permit to Mr. Black, who renounced his Canadian citizenship in pursuit of a British peerage and had served time in a Florida jail for fraud and obstruction of justice.

My comments (by Jeff Li): If Mr. Jason Kenney did not give any input or direction to such a high-profile application, didn’t he fail to do his job as our immigration minister?
