Zuzak GRC Report; Wed., July 06, 2005
(1) Denaturalization and Deportation (d&d) issue:
(a) The Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration (CIMM) tabled its Citizenship Revocation Report in parliament on June 07, 2005. Although it did not accept my position that “citizenship should not be revocable by the state”, the rest of its 12 recommendations are positive in that it envisions a full judicial process in a criminal court of law, “beyond a reasonable doubt” criteria, rights of appeal, etc. This Report and my response are archived on the CIMM 2005 page of my Telusplanet website
(b) Several newspaper articles, including Joe Volpe’s rejection of the Report (June 08) and his initiative to denaturalize 5 people (June 11, 2005), are archived via the Josef Furman link
(c) The Canadian Citizenship Coalition (see Mtg #18, Feb. 08, 2005 on the CIMM 2005 page above) has scheduled a meeting in Toronto for the evening of Thursday, July 07, 2005 to discuss these developments.
(2) The Ethics Commissioner, Bernard Shapiro, tabled his
report on the Sgro
Inquiry on June 21, 2005. (For background, see “Judy Sgro resigns” on
2005 page.) Mr. Shapiro’s report is archived as a pdf file at
He seems to exonerate Ms. Sgro, but crucifies Ihor Wons. It would be nice to hear Mr. Wons' side of the story.
(3) On June 20, 2005, Reuters reported that
Judge Michael Creppy ruled that John Demjanjuk can be deported. But it
been decided where to. I have archived the article on my FortuneCity
(4) June 28, 2005; 11:10 a.m.; CJAD 630 Edmonton Radio - Following the Supreme Court 8-0 decision to allow the deportation of Leon Mugesera to Rwanda, talk show host, Dave Rutherford(?), interviewed Canadian Jewish Congress spokesman, Ed Morgan, on the issue. The CJC had been granted intervenor status in the case. Mr. Morgan was very pleased with the ruling and immediately switched to Nazi war criminals -- saying that this should make it easier to deport them. Obviously, the CJC is continuing its demonization of the victims of the d&d process and has no intention of supporting the recommendations of the CIMM Report on Citizenship Revocation referred to above.
(5) Josef Furman case: In response to a “Notice of Status Review” issued by Chief Justice of the Federal Court, Allan Lutfy, the Plaintiff (i.e. Irwin Cotler of the Department of Justice) claims that it is committed to pursuing action without delay -- having met with witnesses and arranging potential expert witnesses. On May 05, 2005 Prothonotary, Roza Aronovitch, orders that the action shall continue under case management and on May 20, 2005, Justice Lutfy orders that Justice James Hugessen be designated the case management judge and Martha Milczynski the corresponding prothonotary. At a Special Sitting before Martha Milczynski in Toronto on June 14, 2005 (involving Eric Hafemann for the Defence and four lawyers for the Plaintiff -- with Bruce Hughson participating via phone from Edmonton) a Pre-Trial Conference has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 18, 2005 for both T-440-04 (Yura Skomatchuk) and T-560-04 (Josef Furman).
[Note: On June 07, 1999, Allan Lutfy rendered a questionable decision against Serge Kisluk, whose citizenship was revoked on March 02, 2000, but who died on May 21, 2001 before he could be deported.]
(6) UKAR: http://www.willzuzak.ca/lp/index.html
Dr. Lubomyr Prytulak received notification dated June 30, 2005 from the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) that their new Investigator's Report recommends that the complaint by the Canadian Jewish Congress (CJC) against UKAR be submitted to the CHR Tribunal. Dr Prytulak expects to post the relevant material on his website shortly.
