ON APPEAL FROM THE FEDERAL COURT OF APPEAL
Immigration—Deportation order—Failure of the Special Inquiry Officer to inform petitioners of their right to appeal—Immigration Act, R.S.C. 1970, c. I-12, s. 7(2)—Immigration Inquiries Regulations, SOR/67-621, (1967) Can. Gaz., Part II, 101 (No. 24, Dec. 27, 1967), s. 12.
APPEAL from a judgment of the Federal Court of Appeal dismissing an application pursuant to s. 28 of the Federal Court Act thus sustaining a deportation order made against the appellants on December 30, 1976 by the Special Inquiry Officer. Appeal dismissed.
Gerald Postelnik, for the appellants.
Suzanne Marcoux-Paquette, for the respondents.
The judgment of the Court was delivered orally by
PIGEON J.—It will not be necessary to hear you Mrs. Suzanne Marcoux-Paquette.
We are all of the opinion that the Federal Court of Appeal properly dismissed the appelants’ application for review. It was not shown that the Special Inquiry Officer had reason to believe, from information obtained at the inquiry or otherwise, that the appelants might have a right of appeal to the Immigration Appeal Board.
The appeal is dismissed.
Solicitors for the appellants: Postelnik & Postelnik, Montreal.
Solicitor for the respondents: Suzanne Marcoux-Paquette, Montreal.
