Update: Federal Skilled Worker Litigation
David Cohen and myself cross examined James Bernardo McNamee, Director of Immigration, Strategies and Analysis, Division of Strategic Policy in Citizenship and Immigration Canada on Tuesday December 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and David Manicom, Director General, Immigration Branch, Citizenship and Immigration Canada on Wednesday December 19th from 9:30 a.m to 11:30 a.m. at the Federal Court Building in Toronto. Lawyers Erin C. Roth and Cecil L. Rotenberg (day two) were also in attendance.
Although we cannot comment on specifics at this time the cross examination focused on the section 15 constitutional challenge and we were pleased with the outcome. Our team is now working to file our Further Memorandum due to the Federal Court on Friday December 28th, 2012.
