Canada monitoring another ship carrying migrants

Oct 18, 2010 5:17:31 AM - itnnews.lk

The Canadian Government is monitoring a second boatload of Sri Lankan migrants preparing to head for Canada, and has stepped up its co-operation with other countries against human smugglers.

The Globe and Mail said that the Canadian Government is preparing new legislation aimed a human trafficking, as the federal officials believe they have solid evidence that smugglers in Southern Asia are preparing to send another boatload of migrants to the country.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has promised to introduce sweeping legislation aimed at cracking down on human smuggling by increasing the deterrence.

The new legislation which could be introduced as early are expected to include changes to immigration laws that would make it more difficult for groups of people who arrive together to claim refugee status.
