Ottawa has refused to say if it will honour a court-ordered deadline and revise its health-care coverage for refugees in light of Friday’s appeal court dismissal of its request to delay the reinstatement. “Refugees continue to enjoy the same standard of care as Canadians. We’re disappointed with the court’s decision. We’re going to appeal it. We will announce the details of our reaction to that decision shortly,” said Chris Alexander, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. “They have to have something in place by Wednesday,” said lawyer Lorne Waldman. “If they do not comply with the court order, we will go to court to enforce the order.”
