Nice job if you can get it.
Do you think that is too much? I do considering the fact that these are political appointments often serving as rewards for loyal service, lobbying, or just good old fashioned tokenism. Whatever the case may be many of the appointees lack the knowledge or credentials to adequately serve as impartial and objective members of the IRB. As a recent Toronto Sun article pointed out complaints were filed that two new appointees to the IRB are in positions of conflict of interest. You can read the whole article here. In some cases the appointees may be immigrants or former refugees as well. How can these people be impartial when assessing the files of fellow countrymen seeking entry to Canada?
Should it be of any wonder then that Canada has the highest refugee acceptance rate in the entire western world and the highest immigration acceptance in the whole world? Can you see why many critics call Canada's immigration system an industry when positions commanding salaries of $112,000 a year are at stake? Can you see why Canada's immigration and refugee policy needs reform?
