Refund up to $130 million FSW Processng Fees, Proposed.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of this bad news for FSW applicants filed before February 27, 2008. It looks like Citizenship and Immigration Canada is serious is wiping out the FSW backlog.

The Government of Canada is proposing to return applications and refund up to $130 million in fees paid by certain federal skilled worker applicants who applied under previous criteria established prior to February 27, 2008.

Can they really do this? I'm smelling a lawsuit left and right.
