A new investigation by the Canada Border Services Agency into the province s immigration programs has Opposition Leader James Aylward renewing calls for the MacLauchlan government to do a full review of how these programs are working.
Aylward says a second federal investigation in less than three months doesn’ t inspire confidence about government oversight of the PNP.
He notes throughout the spring sitting of the legislature, MLA’s and residents were assured that it was an isolated incident when the first investigation revealed 565 permanent residents used the Sherwood Motel as an address of convenience.
The new investigation deals with allegations that 462 people used the addresses of two Charlottetown homes to gain permanent residency but they have never lived there at all.
The two homes are owned by Chinese immigrants.
