Nice blog on cuts to refugee health care by Alex Neve (Amnesty International Canada). Particularly like the section about using the term “bogus”:
Since it has no real meaning, what does the Minister mean when he uses it? Refugee claimants the government doesnâ€™t like? Coming from countries the Minister wishes they wouldnâ€™t leave? Whose claims get rejected? Rejected on what basis? Because they werenâ€™t believed? Because their problems, though genuine, donâ€™t fit the legal technicalities of the refugee definition? Because a decision-maker was not prepared to agree that human rights problems are real and serious in their country? Because they are a war criminal and thus, while having a valid fear of persecution, are not eligible for refugee status? Because conditions back home have changed since they left? Or because they couldnâ€™t come up with enough documents to prove their story?
