SERGIO R. KARAS QUOTED IN NATIONAL POST STORY ON FORMER CABINET MINISTER AND DEPORTED PIZZA SHOP OWNER

I was quoted extensively in this article:

https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/thirteen-years-later-pizza-shop-owner-deported-after-fabricating-allegations-against-liberal-mp-is-back-in-canada?fbclid=IwAR0rKAkGbHIkD53QuB6EAVZjwO6s3VLoXfwdmjCdaACAH64asvStAnSf0tk

"Sergio Karas, another Toronto immigration lawyer, said it’s actually “not that difficult” to obtain an ARC, so long as several years have passed and the behaviour leading to the deportation was not overly egregious.
The approval is typically made by visa officers, unless the situation is particularly sensitive, he said." 
“In many heavy-duty cases, the matter goes to the minister’s desk,” said Karas. “So one is left to wonder how this (Singh) case unfolded.”
