- Rosenblatt Explains Changes to Retroactive Rules
"I can't stress enough the importance of Canada bringing in skilled workers. The skilled workers account for over 60% of
immigrants coming in. And the economists and experts realize that our growth has been fuelled by the immigrants coming into
the country and that they weren't going to get enough immigrants. The immigrants that were getting refused were furious,
frustrated, feeling like they've been ripped off, and we don't need people from around the world sending this message out
and talking badly about Canada. We need to encourage people and find the best of the best. These are the people that are
going to make our country grow."
David Rosenblatt in an Interview with Lynn Desjardins on Radio Canada International, 19/09/2003
- Rosenblatt Fights Against Unfair Immigration Rules
"'The new pass mark is not realistic or reasonable,' he said. 'What these numbers show is that the new immigration rules
are an absolute failure, particularly with respect to skilled-worker applicants, which our country so desperately needs
to replenish its work force and economic base."

- Retroactivity Unfair. Rosenblatt Fights Immigration
"Immigration has turned mean and nasty," said David Rosenblatt, "Many people paid to apply for immigration under the old
system and when the government changed the rules, making it more difficult to get into the coutnry, application fees should
have been refunded but weren't." he said. "Imagine if you went and put a down payment on a car and then the dealer says
we are not making that car anymore, and we are keeping your money," he said.

- Retroactive Rules Unfair
"We are calling on Parliament to do something about this," said lawyer David Rosenblatt, president of the Federation for
Better Immigration Policy. "This is a real perversion. These people had spent thousands of dollars on fees, on lawyers and
on courier service to speed their applications along," he said in an interview yesterday."

- Rosenblatt Continues Fight Against Retroactive Laws
"Mr. Rosenblatt indicated that after the 102 cases had succesfully challenged the legality of the retroactivity of the new
immigration law, they have received, through different channels, more than 4000 cases of similar nature from all over the
world in a month."
"Mr. Rosenblatt indictated the following two points which will be proposed to the court in the next legal proceeding. One,
request the Immigration Department to assess the immigration application under the technical category according to the old
assessment system. And two, request a large amount of compensation, i.e. $1 M/person CDN, from the Immigration Department,
therefore it is different from the 102 immigration applications under the skilled worker category to challenge the retroactivity
of the new law back to the old cases."
Immigrants want to join a group suit for $1 M in damages against the Federal Immigration Department.

- Rosenblatt Explains Landmark Victory
"When the government fails in its duty to serve the public, appealing to the courts may be an effective mechanism for compelling
accountability from bureaucrats and changing public policy. Coderre is learning this lesson firsthand. But the task now
is to motivate Parliament to strike down the retroactive provisions of the new regulations, and protect the other 150,000+
pre-IRPA applicants from being arbitrarily refused because they do not meet a pass mark designed to reject applicants in
order to eradicate Immigration's backlog."

- Rosenblatt Uses Streaming Video to Find Jobs for Candidates
"Rosenblatt says 'a video enables a potential employer in Toronto to take as little as 30 seconds to two minutes to get
a good sense of or feeling about a candidate. Then a candidate's credentials can be evaluated and a telephone interview
is set up. It's a great time saver for everyone.'"

170,000 skilled worker applicants are now affected by the retroactivity law and at least a quarter of them are from China.
If assessed under the new rules, almost 90 percent of people will not be successful. Because of the new retroactivity law,
David Rosenblatt is advocating that all applicants before the end of March, join120 other skilled worker applicants who
have already filed a group legal proceeding. By filing in federal courts to challenge the retroactivity of the new rules
