Federal Court rules Canada-U.S. Safe Third Country Agreement unconstitutional


decision from Justice Ann McDonald explicitly states that the U.S. is no longer a safe country for refugees sent back from Canada due to the risk of imprisonment.

New Canada-U.S. border directive restores some asylum rules suspended by shutdown “For the reasons outlined below, I have concluded that the actions of Canadian authorities in enforcing the STCA result in ineligible (refugee) claimants being imprisoned by US authorities,” McDonald wrote.“I have concluded that imprisonment and the attendant consequences are inconsistent with the spirit and objective of the STCA and are a violation of the rights guaranteed by section 7 of the (Charter of Rights and Freedoms).”The court challenge to the STCA was launched by several refugee advocacy.
