The applicant, a citizen of Egypt, was found inadmissible for serious criminality and a delegate of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration concluded the applicant posed a danger to the public in Canada. A removal order was issued. The applicant filed an application for leave and judicial review of the danger opinion, and moved for a stay of the removal order.
The Federal Court, in a decision reported  F.T.R. Uned. 947, refused to grant a stay. The applicant appealed, raising bias issues. An interim stay was granted pending appeal.
The Federal Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal. The court delayed its judgment from coming into force for three weeks to allow the applicant time to commence proceedings in the Supreme Court of Canada.
