FYI, the federal Liberal Party of Canada is launching an online forum to engage Canadians in its policy development process. Here’s an opportunity to raise issues related to immigrant children and families. An excerpt from the announcement (links added by me):
National Policy Chair Joan Bourassa and National Policy Vice-Chair Dominic LeBlanc are proud to announce the full public launch of the Liberal Party of Canada’s Forum Liberalis, a web platform that enables Canadians to collaborate, exchange ideas, and develop innovative new policies….
The online forum is at http://forum.liberal.ca. Registration is required.
The Star reports that Michael Ignatieff, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada and Maurizio Bevilacqua, MP and immigration critic for the Liberals are planning to undertake a cross-Canada consultation on immigration reform. Information will be posted as it becomes available.
