The Canadian Jewish Congress was granted intervener status in the case of Leon Mugesera, who allegedly delivered a speech in Rwanda in 1992 that incited hatred, murder and genocide. Canada’s Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration is contesting Mugesera’s application for residence because of the alleged speech. “CJC has strong feelings of empathy with the Rwandan community as fellow victims and survivors of genocide,” said Manuel Prutschi, the group’s national executive director.
