Under Canadian law, what is a valid reason to revoke permanent residency?

In light of these circumstances, perhaps it would be more honest for everyone to say that the Ben-Ali family is not wanted in Canada "any longer." At a minimum, this might avoid having to answer embarrassing questions about why our leaders are comfortable about courting other dictators around the world at the same time as they're in a froth about the Ben-Ali family.

Quite possible he hasn't been actually residing in Canada for the right length of time, which means we could just boot him whenever we felt like it. You have to be in Canada for 730 days (2 years) in the past five years.

We can also deport people who are convicted of crimes in Canada, and of course, extradite anyone who is wanted for a crime elsewhere.

The moon is the same moon above you
Aglow with it's cool evening light
But shining at night, in Tunisia
Never does it shine so bright

The stars are aglow in the heavens
But only the wise understand
That shining at night in Tunisia
They guide you through the desert sand

Words fail, to tell a tale
Too exotic to be told
Each nights a deeper night
In a world, ages old

The cares of the day seem to vanish
The ending of day brings release
Each wonderful night in Tunisia
Where the nights are filled with peace

/thanks, Ella

The Canadian government has reportedly revoked the permanent-resident status of the billionaire brother-in-law of a Tunisian dictator.

Don't worry, Tunisians, it's easy to get back in:

1. Get a rickety boat
2. Sink in the Vancouver harbour

Immigration officials will be waiting nearby with your new Canadian passport. Enjoy!

As a LEGAL LANDED IMMIGRANT and later a proud Canadian citizen I'm glad that our government kicked these motherfarkers out.

It would be an insult to me who had to spend 2 farking years in a hell hole refugee camp and all those that goes thru the legal process just to get in this wonderful country!

When it smells like a Spring election, the government can find a reason.

And frankly, who is going to oppose kicking out a bunch of corrupt despots?

Certainly not anyone in the opposition if they want to win as many seats as possible in the next election.

Well, I imagine the chance he'll die if he goes to his home country is pretty damn high.

Anyway, isn't refugee status temporary upon review of the case?

We can. But we don't. It took 6 farking years to get Charles Ng into the hands of US authorities, who wanted him for 12 murders, all because he faced the death penalty.

Where exactly are we going to deport Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's family to? Tunisia? Oh noes, they might actually face persecution prosecution there.

We suck when it comes to sending someone else's garbage back to them.

As an Aussie I am really getting a kick out of Canada's immigration policies...

We recently tightened up standards to slow the flow of troublesome north Indian students taking bullshiat courses (hair dressing, commercial cookery) as a means to get PR. At that point 130,000 pissed off wannabe taxi drivers left our country and headed to Canada.

Meanwhile, more Chinese students/immigrants stepped up to fill the void here, so we are instead getting very highly educated, competitive immigrants who want to work in proper proffessions... and actually pay taxes, follow the law etc.

\UK stopped accepting all north Indian students in Feb 2010.
\\By 2012 Canada will proberly have figured it out as well.

Permanent residency isn't a right or granting of rights, it's a visa status that just recognizes that the person is legally allowed to stay in Canada for a longer duration than temporary. AFAIK, a government doesn't need a reason to kick a non-citizen out of the country or refuse them entry.
