Immigration Minister Says Canadian-Born Criminals Can't Be Deported from Toronto
It looks like Mayor Ford's desire to make sure people who are convicted of gun violence don't return to Toronto won't be fulfilled.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney spoke with Don Landry and Bill Hayes Friday afternoon, to, once and for all, clear up whether people who are sent to jail for gun crimes can be kicked out of the city.
Kenney says, "once you're released and you're beyond parole you get what's called mobility rights of the Charter of Rights - you get to choose where you're going to live, and whether we like it or not, that's the situation."
"We can't tell people which city they can or cannot live in."
Thursday, the Mayor said he wanted to ask the Prime Minister about 'deporting' any one, regardless of citizenship, out of the city of Toronto.
However, Minister Kenney said he would be working hard to deport criminals who are in Canada illegally and that he would be willing to assist Mayor Ford in understanding the policy.
