Zuzak GRC Report; Wed., Nov. 02, 2005
(1) CIMM UPDATE: In an Oct. 06, 2005 news release, Andrew Telegdi announced that CIMM Report 12 titled “Updating Canada's Citizenship Laws: It's Time” was tabled in Parliament. It makes a number of recommendations for inclusion into the new Citizenship of Canada Act and complements Report 10, which strongly urged the government to move to an exclusively judicial process for citizenship revocation. Mr. Telegdi was re-elected as Chair of Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration (CIMM) on Oct. 18, 2005.

(2) D&D issue: At the Pre-Trial Conference on 18Oct2005 in Toronto for the cases of Josef Furman and Jura Skomatchuk, it was decided that the parties will tender their Agreed Statement of Facts and Joint Book of Documents for trial 75 days prior to the trial date. Relevant evidence from T-440-04 (Skomatchuk) will be subsequently applied to T-560-04 (Furman). Trial date and location (either St. Catharines or Ottawa) is still to be set.
It is incomprehensible that, despite the strong stand taken by CIMM, the Canadian courts and the general public against the present d&d process which fraudulently equates immigration infractions with war criminality, the Canadian government insists on using it to revoke the citizenship of octogenarians. Let us hope that the Ukrainian community is prepared for these forthcoming show trials.
There appear to be no new developments in the CJC v UKAR complaint to the CHRC. Dr. Lubomyr Prytulak continues to post relevant material on his website. Key documents are listed at
