Minister Toews Statement on the 18th Removal from the 'Wanted by the CBSA' List

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 22, 2012) - The Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety, commended the Canada Border Services Agency on the May 17 removal of Tarquin Seemongal in Montréal. Seemongal, who was apprehended in Montreal on May 4 following a tip received from the public, is the 18 individual from the "Wanted by the CBSA" list to be removed from Canada.

"Our Government has been unwavering in its commitment to locate and remove individuals who are inadmissible to Canada for serious criminality and we are grateful for the tremendous support that Canadians have provided in locating these individuals. The success of the "Wanted" program is an example of what can be achieved when agencies like the CBSA and the public work together towards a common goal - making our streets and communities safe.

This removal demonstrates that Canada will not be a haven for those who try to enter or live here illegally, who have broken the law and have endangered the safety of our citizens."
