It Must Be Election Season

Today's Toronto Star reports that Immigration Minister Joe Volpe is buying off the immigrant vote clearing up bottlenecks in the immigration system.

Canada will throw open its doors to help reunite parents and grandparents with their children who have already settled here.

The federal government will spend $72 million over the next two years to speed applications and help the new immigrants get settled in Canada.

As well today, Immigration Minister Joe Volpe will announce that international students in Canada will be able to work while attending school and he'll commit more money to reduce the huge backlog in citizenship applications.
