Open letter/advice to PM, others in Ottawa from Human Rights Watch:
... Now that the new cabinet has been appointed, the time has come for that leadership. The signatories therefore call upon Prime Minister Trudeau, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada Sean Fraser and Minister of Foreign Affairs Mélanie Joly to urgently address the following four major issues that must be resolved if Canada is to achieve its purpose in securing the safe and timely evacuation of the at-risk individuals from Afghanistan targeted through Canada’s special programs.

1) Clarify Canada’s policy by defining its terms.

(...)

2) Devote Significant Resources Needed to Get the Job Done, and Permit Discretion for Decision Makers as Required.

(...)

3) Waive the Requirement of UNHCR Recognition, and Recognize the Afghan Crisis as a Prima Facie Refugee Situation.

(...)

4) Working with Allies, Demand Assurances from the Taliban.

(...)

Our Government has no shame. The PM was seized of a personally-driven effort to increase his power, and forced the machinery of government to pause while he and his team positioned to expand the base of his throne, even as tens of thousands of Afghans tried to flee the ravages of the Taliban. Weeks later, with a statistically minuscule blip of increase to a refreshed minority government (and 2/3 billion CAD of the citizens’ treasure expended for little to show for it) Afghans continued to seek support of one of the countries who’s soldiers benefited so greatly from the loyal Afghans’.

May Justin Trudeau and the rest of his loyal supporters have the courage to look at Nazifa’s picture, and explain to us why she and others like her were “asking too much…”

For shame, JT, for shame.

I can answer this. Trudeau could care less about the plight of someone who assisted the CAF thousands of miles away. This should be splashed on every media outlet available. You, MR PM are partially responsible for this young woman's death. SHE IS THE SAME AGE AS MY GRANDDAUGHTER AND YES I AM FUCKING ANGRY.

My son did not die serving with these wonderful people only to have them abandoned.. Jesus H Christ.

A leopard cannot change his spots no matter what they tell you.

This from Reuters ....
Canada will take in female Afghan judges and their families who have been living in limbo, primarily in Greece, since their evacuation from Afghanistan in the fall, a spokesperson for the immigration minister said Friday.

In addition to the judges and their families, a group totalling about 230 people, Canada will also resettle an unspecified number of Afghans from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities who had been referred by a third-party aid organization, the spokesperson said.

They are expected to come to Canada next year but there is no firm date ...
