Citizenship reforms a serious threat to rights of Canadians

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander’s reforms to Canada’s citizenship legislation represent a serious threat to the rights of all Canadians.

They broadly expand the requirements for citizenship in ways that will make it inaccessible to many while dramatically reducing a person’s due process rights when the government seeks to take citizenship away.
