On April 4, 1985 the Supreme Court of Canada recognized that refugee claimants have the right to fundamental justice in Canada. That hard-won right has increasingly come under threat. Our panelists will talk about how refugee rights are under attack and what refugee claimants and human rights activists are doing to resist and push back.
