One year anniversary of the No More Blood Tour in Canada

This month last year, four amazing human rights activists from Mexico came to Canada to discuss the security crisis in their country (which is also the country of one of the speaking tour’s organizers).  One of the outcomes of this speaking tour in Canada is the exclusion of Mexico from the safe country of origin list.  Last year, Immigration and Citizenship Canada was planning to include Mexico as a safe country of origin.  This meant that people with failed refugee claims from Mexico was not going to be able to access the Refugee Appeal division.

The Mexican human rights activists and the organizers of the tour met with officials of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada to discuss how Mexico is NOT a safe country of origin.

In December 2012, Immigration Minister did not include Mexico in the safe country of origin list.
