Story: Kudos to the Canadian Media
We at Bellissimo Law Group have been approached
by many members of the media including CBC Radio, the Toronto Star, Listen
Up TV to share our views regarding the proposed refugee reforms. Mario
Bellissimo also had the privilege to hear Minister Kenney speak at our National CBA Immigration Conference in Halifax where he shared
his views on the proposed changes in an impassioned and articulate way.
Members of the media were there too.
We must give a big thanks to the Canadian media who has had a lot of time
for this issue and continues to keep it at the forefront of Canadians
minds. The media is a powerful tool and it is reassuring to see so many who
work within its ranks really searching to understand the issues to
represent a balanced reporting to Canadians and would be Canadians. Job well
D. Bellissimo appeared in a television expose on the proposed refugee
reforms which on Global Television on Sunday June 20, 2010. To see the

v. Canada (MCI), 2010 FC 601
Unless otherwise demonstrated, an
internal flight alternative is a reasonable conclusion for an applicant...
To qualify as a Convention refugee, Mr.
Balwant Singh had to demonstrate that he had no IFA (Thirunavukkarasu v.
Canada (Minister of Employment and Immigration),
CanLII 3011 (F.C.A.),  F.C.J.
No. 1172 (QL),  1 F.C. 589 (F.C.A.))...
An IFA is clearly within the expertise and
purview of the RPD. This Court does not intervene unless an applicant
demonstrates that the conclusion of the RPD was unreasonable (Singh v.
Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration),
FC 158 (CanLII), 2008 FC 158,
 F.C.J. No. 202 (QL); Singh v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and
FC 494 (CanLII), 2008 FC 494, 167
A.C.W.S. (3d) 372). Mr. Balwant Singh had to demonstrate that he would be
at risk in every part of India, which he did not demonstrate, as he lived
in Delhi for ten months prior to coming to Canada; and, it is recognized,
that he also left India with his own passport from an airport under the
control of the central authorities.
