The UN migration compact spells radical change for Canada
This UN compact is unprecedented and truly radical. It seeks to make immigration a universal human right. "Refugees and migrants are entitled to the same universal human rights and fundamental freedoms, which must be respected, protected and fulfilled at all times," reads the document's preamble. The agreement doesn't simply apply to bona-fide refugees - those fleeing war and persecution whose government has failed to protect them. It applies to all migrants.
