CANADA’S TRAVEL BAN IS NOT LEGAL, AUSTRALIA’S CLAIMS IS UNBELIEVABLE article Canada’s Travel Ban Is Not Legal, Australia’s Claims Are Unconstitutional article The Supreme Court of Canada on Thursday dismissed two of the three petitions challenging the country’s travel restrictions on the island nation of Tuvalu.
The court’s decision to vacate the cases and vacate its earlier ruling that a temporary travel ban on the territory was constitutional, the first time the country has overturned a travel ban in over a decade, is a major victory for the country.
In a 5-2 decision, the court said Canada’s ban violates the constitution’s guarantee of freedom of movement.
The decision was issued less than two months after the country announced its first travel ban for Tuvalus, on July 25, 2017.
The decision comes just weeks after the islanders petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn the ban, arguing it was unconstitutional and had violated international law.
The case was filed by Tuvaluan government officials in July, claiming Canada’s ruling in July 2017 that Tuvalo’s constitution protects Tuvalian sovereignty violated international human rights law.
The ruling, which the country appealed, ruled the ruling violated the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
The appeal was heard in December.
The ruling came after the court ruled in January that Canada’s constitutional interpretation of the constitution does not apply to Tuvalos constitution, but the case was brought to court by the Tuvaluo government.
It was filed before the court was able to rule on the constitutionality of the constitutional interpretation.
In the ruling, the Supreme Chief Justice of Canada and Justice John Binnie wrote that “the constitutionality question in this case involves whether the prohibition on entry into Canada by persons who are nationals of countries that are parties to the Convention on Elimination Of All Forms Of Racial Discrimination, such as Tuvalues, is constitutionally sound.
We have found that it is not.”
The ruling also said the country did not have a constitutional basis to overturn a permanent ban on Tuvaluns nationals who are not citizens of countries at war with Canada.
The ban on visitors and residents of Tuvais territories was imposed in November, 2017 after the ruling that the island’s constitution is unconstitutional.
