Getting the facts straight on Kenney's story

Anyone reading the newspaper articles written after Immigration Minister Jason Kenney launched a rant against the judiciary last week, they would have seen numerous legal and refugee experts criticize the minister's remarks, particularly his apparent failure to understand how Canada's legal system works. Well, anyone who didn't read the edited version of The Globe and Mail report that was posted on the minister's own website.

NOTE TO READERS: The Globe and Mail has told Embassy that Immigration Minister Jason Kenney's staff posted an earlier version of their story on his website before the comments from the legal community were added. A Globe technical issue is to blame for the timestamp being the same on the two stories. However, it has raised concerns about the use of their story without permission.
