Over the years I have written several articles for the Vancouver Observer and the National Observer. This blog post is an attempt to document some of that writing as both of those award winning and well regarded news sites shift and change.
For the Vancouver Observer, between 2011 and 2015, I wrote four articles under the column heading “Enter. Exit. Stay”. The topics ranged from musicians who could not enter Canada, to municipal refugee policy as it related to the Syrian refugees who came to Canada in 2015 (near the end of the Harper years), to parental sponsorships under then Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.
For the National Observer, I have written five articles, between 2015 and 2017, which have explored immigration policy under Justin Trudeau ranging from his first mandate in 2015, to refugee policy, to the privacy rights of those who face removal from Canada, to religious intolerance (as you can see below).
I hope to continue writing on the topics of migration, privacy, culture, and pluralism in the future.
