As part of the CFMO’s public campaign, we are frequently engaging with media sources to promote our free movement initiative.

This week, Joshua Thomson (CFMO’s representative for East Canada in Saint John) spoke with Hance Colburne on the Information Morning radio show for CBC News, discussing the success of our campaign, and what the future holds for free movement between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom:
“Many believe that the Commonwealth is a relic of the old world that is no longer relevant, though this movement is an idea that could keep it alive for the future and preserve it for future generations,” Thomson said.
“There is a want for this; there are people living in these countries that, for example, are separated from their loved ones and cant be together because they are restricted with permits and visas. This movement is an idea where we are able to commute between countries and keep our tradition alive that has been in place for all these decades, but it is also a new idea that could “reinvent the wheel” for the future“.
The interview details the compatibility of the nations in incorporating a free movement policy, public and government support, and the hopeful timeline for free movement to be enacted by the governments of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
