Why Ms. Caplan was "Demoted".

There are a lot of posts on this web-site inquiring as to why a portfolio-change from
Immigration to Revenue is considered a "demotion".

The reason is that unlike Immigration, most of the laws governing revenue are
statutory (ie. formed by statute or parliament). There is VERY little leeway on the
part of the revenue minister when it comes to changing taxation policy.

But the Immigration minister enjoys ENORMOUS latitude in framing immigration policy
WITHOUT the consent of parliament. Remember that
Ms.Caplan's controversial immigration plan was framed WITHOUT a single word of
approval from parliament. Plus, there is a lot of discretionary power in the hands
of an immigration minister (Minister's permit, etc.) which Revenue ministers
simply do not have.

Revenue ministers are relegated to the boring(?) job of enforcing Canada's National
Income tax laws. Period. There is very little actual power, leeway or discretion in
the job. Hence Ms. Caplan's move to Revenue can be seen as a "demotion". Hope this
explains things to skeptics.

Whatever may be the reason for Ms.Caplan's move, one thing is sure, Canadians were
upset about their immigration policy being hijacked by the idiotic new rules.
Politicians rarely take action if they're not scared of losing votes.

It's a pity though that Canadians can see the value of a strong immigration system
more than their government. At a time when Canada is faced with severe labour
shortages, a receding population and declining tax revenue, these new rules were
TOTALLY out of order.

so this means the new law will not be implemented or will there be changed in the new
law made by Ms Caplan.

The expectation is that some changes will be made, possibly in the manner in
which retroactivity is used. It is not likely that the new Regulations will be
scrapped entirely.
