Public parks are essential public spaces. In ordinary times, they are places where people gather, play with kids, walk and play with dogs, play games with friends and strangers in the community, run, bike and express themselves. They are crucial spaces for community cohesion. But these are not ordinary times. People cannot gather in groups of more than five, and cannot come closer than two metres to each other. Some people are not allowed out at all due to self-isolation or quarantine orders.

the whole idea of charging someone for being removed from the country is rife with problems. For one, they have already been removed, and suffered a forced change in their – and possibly their family’s – lives as a result. Secondly, charging anything assumes that they cost Canada for actions that they are culpable for. Third, the whole point of increasing the fees to such a degree – likely unaffordable to anyone removed – can only be to prevent those deported from ever returning to Canada. Fourth, it separates family from each other, which is contrary to Canada’s objectives in its immigration and refugee laws. Fifth, charging money for being forced into immigration detention should be cruel and unusual punishment. Finally, how is it fair to call these charges “fees”? Fees are administrative costs, which only make sense if they can actually be paid. They are better described as fines because they are punitive rather than administrative. They are designed to ward off those deported from the country from ever returning, akin to banishment.
