The Canadian Bar Association is expected to speak before a House of Commons committee Tuesday to outline concerns about a proposed law that would bar people involved in polygamous relationships from immigrating to Canada.

The CBA has argued the proposed changes in Bill S-7 — known as the Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act — would prevent women and children forced into polygamous relationships from immigrating to Canada.

Lawyer Suzanne Costom, who is expected to testify before the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration on behalf of the CBA, said the working title of the bill is needlessly inflammatory.
