Mexican activists appeal to Ottawa....

Activists ask Canada NOT to declare Mexico a "safe" country.

Extract from article by Linda Diebel for TheStar.com :
The Conservative government is on the verge of passing Bill C-31, legislation that gives the immigration minister the sole right to declare a country “safe” — thereby making it virtually impossible for its citizens to gain refugee status in Canada.
“Mexico is a perfect example of why this legislation is so troubling,” NDP immigration critic Don Davies told the Star. “Thousands of people in Mexico face persecution by the authorities and yet Mexico is Canada’s friend and NAFTA partner. Does that mean political partisanship will enter into decisions of state?”

Good point, CB. I guess the Canadian authorities think Mexico is safe enough for Mexicans but not for Canadians.
