Crime in Canada
The Bishop of Rome warned that, “despite being the community of the Risen One, we can find it wandering lost and disillusioned before the scandal of evil and the violence of Calvary. It has no choice then but to take in hand the feeling of failure and ask itself: what happened, why did it happen, how could it have happened?”
“There is nothing worse, in the face of life’s setbacks, than to run away so as not to face them. It is a temptation of the enemy, who threatens our spiritual journey and the journey of the Church; he wants to make us believe that defeat is definitive, he wants to paralyze us with bitterness and sadness, to convince us that there is nothing to do and that therefore it is not worthwhile to find a way to start over again.”

While the ultimate goal of STARSOM is to dismantle the smuggling networks that profit from this crime and secure convictions for those responsible, the project also aims to ensure that authorities treat smuggled migrants fairly and humanely.

Education in Canada
I have an indelible memory because it is so curious. In 1998 I was a tourist in Vancouver and by chance I met an unknown Colombian at a fair. When I expressed our desire to live in Canada, in spite of not having any confidence with him, he formulated what he considered to be the effective strategy to obtain a resident visa. His words went something like this:
Yes, some are captivated by the benefits that applicants and their families receive while their refugee claims are being processed. I copy verbatim what one of my contacts wrote to me:
Anyway, with this note I do not intend to discourage those who have certain reasons to apply for refuge in Canada. But I do intend to show the risks to which those who maliciously invent such reasons expose themselves. I conclude by giving a few succinct elements of what is actually required for an asylum claim.
Section 96 of the Canadian Immigration Act (IRPA) defines the concept of Convention Refugee and sets out five grounds that are considered the basis for a refugee claim. A claim must be made when at least one of these grounds, which are known internationally by the term ‘nexus’, is met.
Canada’s legal security
Canada is pleased to submit to the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women its combined eighth and ninth periodic reports on the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (hereinafter referred to as the “Convention”), ratified by Canada on December 10, 1981.
In 2013, 17.7 million women represented 50.4% of Canada’s population, maintaining a slim female majority that has endured for over 3 decades. Information and data related to issues such as women’s family status, education, employment, economic well-being, unpaid work and health are available in the sixth edition of Women in Canada: A gender-based statistical report.
This section of the report contains information related to articles 1, 2 and 3 of the Convention, and addresses the legal framework for the protection of women’s rights and the governance mechanism relating to the advancement of women. It focuses on the Committee’s comments 9-12, 17-18, 25-28 and 49-52.
