The Bloc and NDP save Jason Kenney’s hopes of immigration reform.

Kenney singled out NDP immigration critic Olivia Chow and the Bloc Québécois’s immigration critic, Thierry St-Cyr, for their “remarkable diligence” working with the government to revise the bill, which seeks to limit the number of fraudulent applications and reduce the strain on Canada’s refugee system…

“We found a very reasonable compromise that met both objectives,” Kenney said Thursday. “It is evidence that this minority Parliament can work. It is credit to my critics in particular who demonstrated their diligence as real legislators .… This is a win-win for everyone.”
