Friends,

Thank you for contacting me about immigration reform. I always appreciate receiving your valuable feedback.

Recently, MP Devinder Shory, CPC MP for Calgary Northeast, introduced Private Members Bill C-425, Strengthening the Value of Canadian Citizenship, that would restore to the Citizenship Act powers to effectively revoke citizenship from Canadian dual citizens who go abroad and commit an act of war against Canada. Bill C-425 would also allow permanent residents who have signed a minimum three-year contract with the Canadian Forces to gain citizenship one year earlier than normal.

The Government is considering expanding this bill to include automatically stripping Canadian citizenship from dual citizens convicted of committing terrorist acts. It is our belief that anyone who commits a terrorist act in Canada or abroad has clearly renounced their Canadian citizenship by rejecting Canadian values and the loyalty to our country that citizenship requires. Most Western democracies, including Australia and the United Kingdom, already have the authority to revoke citizenship from terrorists.

I would value your feedback on this proposal.

If you agree and urge the Government to move quickly and pass legislation to strip convicted terrorists of their Canadian citizenship please sign the petition at

It is important that you let me know if you think we are on the right track.

Best regards,

Jason

PS: As always, please forward this e-mail to your friends. Ask them to sign the petition if they support this proposal.
