    In this article I give my thoughts on the TFW program in light of the latest claims of program manipulation: The Harper government has “allowed this program to get completely out of hand and there are abuses and manipulations of this program all over the country,” [Davies] said. “We think that’s primarily a failure of the government, whose job it is to make sure that these immigration programs are being administered properly.”

    "Don Davies, NDP MP for Vancouver Kingsway and opposition critic for international trade, told the Straight that secrecy around TPP negations mean Canadians likely won’t know what Ottawa agrees to until it’s too late for the public to have a say."

    "The October signing was a staged political act intended by Harper to try and change the channel here at home," Davies, the MP for Vancouver Kingsway, said. "It was premature as (the deal) was not yet finalized. It still isn't."

    This morning I held a press conference at my office to comment on a series of unfavourable changes to immigration policy announced by the Conservative government. Please read the release below for more details. --- Conservative Immigration Policy in Chaos, Says Federal NDP February 20, 2014 Vancouver, BC – The Conservative Government is seriously mismanaging Canada’s immigration system and damaging Canada’s reputation abroad, NDP MP Don Davies said today. The Conservatives have shocked the system – once again – by suddenly cancelling the Immigrant Investor Program with no consultation or notice to anyone. This has crushed the dreams of 60,000 applicants, many of them from China. “Such behaviour is not only unfair to the applicants, it sends a message to the world that Canada is not a stable or welcoming market for investors,” Davies said. Davies, the Official Opposition Critic for International Trade and Deputy Critic for Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, said the 2014 Budget tabled last week is further proof of the government’s mismanagement of the immigration portfolio. “Under the Conservatives, immigrants cannot predict with certainty what the rules are, citizenship will be more difficult to acquire and wait times are unacceptably long,” said Davies. “It is time to state the truth: the Conservatives’ immigration policy is in chaos.” This is the third time the Conservative government has acted with such reckless haste, having abruptly cancelled 300,000 skilled worker applications and freezing parental sponsorships for 2 years with no advance notice. Davies also pointed to recent changes that make applying for citizenship more expensive and difficult to achieve. “The Conservatives are tripling the citizenship application fees, increasing residency requirements and making it much harder to satisfy the language conditions. This will deny Canadian citizenship to many people who want it, and deserve it. That is not a proper way to deal with the backlog. Putting sufficient resources into the system is a much more responsible way to proceed,” said Davies. Davies said that after 8 years of power and many empty promises, the Conservatives have made no meaningful progress on foreign credential recognition, which he called “an extremely important issue to immigrants.” “The Conservatives say there is a skills shortage in Canada – yet we have thousands of doctors, nurses, engineers, architects and skilled people of all kinds who cannot fill necessary jobs because of their unrecognized foreign credentials,” said Davies. “The conclusion is clear: the Conservatives’ failures in immigration policy are unfair to immigrants and are damaging Canada’s economy and trade relationships.”

    Please see the press release below. My NDP colleagues and I are calling for more transparency behind the TPP trade agreement: February 12, 2014 NDP CALLING FOR TRANSPARENCY IN TRADE OTTAWA – NDP International Trade critic Don Davies (Vancouver – Kingsway) is urging the Conservative government to release the full text of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement to Canadians for input before it is finalized. “The TPP covers issues that affect many areas of Canada’s economy and society—including several policy areas that have never been subject to trade agreements before,” said Davies. “In the interest of transparency and accountability, trade negotiation documents must be released to the public and in a meaningful way.” The TPP is a free trade agreement that would cover approximately 40 per cent of global economic output and one-third of world trade. The U.S. Trade Representative office has allowed Members of Congress to view the text and the E.U. has committed to releasing the investment chapter of its current trade negotiations with the U.S. for full public discussion. “Trade agreements are negotiated for Canadians, not political parties,” said Davies. “Ensuring opportunities for citizen input and comment is vital to any agreement’s success and good public policy,” said Davies.

    Today, the NDP moved a Motion at Trade Committee to study the progress of human rights and labour standards in Colombia. This is particularly important in light of the fact that the human/labour rights reports required under the Canada-Colombia Trade Agreement have been woefully deficient. It is also very timely given the focus on Nelson Mandela, who spoke clearly and forcefully about the need to link human and labour rights with trade and commercial interests. The NDP also forced the Conservatives to agree to hold meetings with human rights and labour organizations when our Committee travels to Colombia in March.... http://dondavies.ca/trade-committee-headed-to-latin-america-to-discuss-tpp-pacific-alliance-in-new-year/
