Manitoba NDP joins call to end controversial Canada-U.S. Safe Third Country Agreement – Manitoba – CBC News – The call to scrap the Safe Third Country Pact follows similar requests from advocates and immigration lawyers, along with law students at the University of Manitoba, who say it compels asylum seeks to risk their lives crossing the border.

The PC government told CBC they have no pans to lobby the federal government to bow out of the international agreement.

“The Safe Third Country Agreement is supported by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees to prevent so-called ‘asylum shopping.’ The Manitoba government supports the government of Canada’s position to uphold this agreement in order to preserve the integrity and fairness of the immigration system,” said Manitoba’s Immigration Minister Ian Wishart in a written statement.
