Citizenship: A Right or A Privilege?


On Tuesday March 11th, Carla Green and Amelie Phillipson hosted a live panel discussion on Off the Hour. The panel centred around the question: citizenship: a privilege or a right? Carla and Amelia spoke with Malek, a Montreal student who has gone through the Canadian immigration process, Jaggi Singh from No One Is Illegal and Solidarity Across Borders, and Noa Mendelsohn Aviv from the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. In the wake of Immigration Minister Chris Alexander’s proposed changes to Canada’s Citizenship Act, they discussed what Canadian citizenship means now, what it’s meant in the past, and what it will mean in the future if the amendment passes.
