Human smuggling is already a crime in this country, but there has been few successful prosecutions and the government says the act would strengthen Canada's ability to prosecute such crimes and deter queue-jumping in the immigration system, according to CTV. It will also hold ship owners and operators responsible if their vessels are used in smuggling operations. "We are not going to be a doormat for the dangerous crime of human smuggling," Kenney told reporters at a news conference Tuesday in Calgary. "The Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada's Immigration System Act" is supposed to make it easier to prosecute smugglers and impose mandatory prison sentences. As reported
