year points: Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has done much to improve the lot for immigrants and refugees caught up in the Immigration and Refugee Board system, according to Toronto Star. But there is a lot more to be done. By declaring in 2016 that people should be locked up pending refugee and immigration hearings only as a last resort, he reduced the number held in detention in Canada to 3,557 last year, down from about 10,000 only five years ago. CHAD HIPOLITO / THE CANADIAN PRESS Still, an independent review of cases that led to the recent release of eight immigration detainees held behind bars for more than a year points to the fact that there is still much more to be done. An independent audit of how the Immigration and Refugee Board conducts hearings that was released in July identified a number of alarming problems. That's no surprise. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
