Prime Minister Justin Trudeau touted his government’s measures to help the middle class in a news conference Tuesday to mark the end of the spring sitting of Parliament.
The prime minister said he will continue to help them by promoting the migration policy in Canada on the world stage as President Donald Trump’s travel ban rages controversy.
During a conference news in Ottawa, Trudeau said to finalize parliamentary sitting that the government officials have had “multiple conversations” with the U.S. administration about the protection of Canadian rights in the face of immigration decisions south of the border.
“But at the same time, Canadians have been very clear that we see immigration as a net positive, that we know we don’t have to build stronger, more resilient communities”, said Trudeau. “I will continue to stand for Canadian values and Canadian success in our immigration system as I always have, whether it’s in Washington or in Hamburg next week or elsewhere in the world”.
“On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed a limited version of Trump’s ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries to take effect.” CBC News.
More of this argument will be heard in October but meanwhile, the court said Trump’s ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen could be enforced if those visitors lack a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
During the conference, Trudeau was asked about a wide range of topics ranging from trade concerns with the U.S. to recent news that a Canadian Special Forces member had a shot and killed an ISIS fighter at a record distance for a sniper. Trudeau called the sniper actions “entirely consistent” with the role of troops in norther Iraq. Stating that the “advice and assist” mission had always defended the Canadian forces as well as our coalition partners. Said Trudeau. “That is something that is integral to this mission, and that is something that has always been followed”.
Moreover, the National Defense stated that the Force 2 special unit forces were supporting Iraqi forces when he shot an enemy fighter from 3,540 meters away.
The prime minister, earlier last Tuesday issued a statement to mark Multiculturalism Day with the speech “Canadians come from every corner of the world, speak two official languages and hundreds more, practice many faiths, and represent many cultures. Multiculturalism is at the heart of Canada’s heritage and identity, and as Canadians, we recognize that our differences make us strong”, he said. “Whoever we are, wherever we come from, these values bring us together as equal members of this great country”.
