e-2866 (Citizenship and immigration)

Initiated by Guy Roy from Lévis, Quebec

Original language of petition: French

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • In our opinion, the Safe Third Country Agreement violates Canada’s international obligations to refugees under the 1951 Refugee Convention; and
  • The Safe Third Country Agreement forces asylum seekers to make dehumanizing, irregular crossings.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada and Quebec, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. End the Safe Third Country Agreement; and
2. Accept and process refugee claims made at regular crossings along the Canada-US border.
