Canada's Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney

When Canada's Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney, talks about transformational change, he's not engaging in hyperbole. Kenney has either introduced or is planning to introduce a long list of changes that will fundamentally alter immigration policy from fast-tracking the system for skilled newcomers, to changes to the appeal process for refugees, to eliminating the automatic granting of citizenship on babies born in this country. Since so much of the story of this country has been written by newcomers, these changes could also fundamentally change the narrative of Canada. Jason Kenney joins us today to discuss his plans.

Today's guest host was Jim Brown.

Part One of The Current


It's Monday, March 19th.

A British MP says Canada got a bad deal on used submarines it bought from the U.K. in 1998 and should consider asking for a refund.

Currently, the subs are so dodgy even Peter MacKay won't take a free ride in one.

This is The Current.

Canada's Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney

We started this segment with a clip from Jason Kenney, Canada's Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, speaking to the Economic Club of Canada earlier in March.

It's been a busy few months for the conservative MP from Calgary southeast ... rolling out plans, proposals and legislation and preaching a new vision for immigration in Canada.

Jason Kenney joined us today to talk about that vision. He was in Ottawa.

This segment was produced by The Current's Howard Goldenthal.
