Elizabeth May, Green Party leader, MP for Saanich-Gulf Island
The historic importance of this case cannot be overstated. For millions of people around the world, citizenship forms the bedrock of human rights and equality. Unfortunately in Canada, the government interprets citizenship as a legislative privilege that can be applied arbitrarily and denied to a person on discriminatory grounds when it should be a constitutional right. I commend Jackie Scott for fighting the discrimination of our current system and for standing up for equal rights for all Canadians.”
