War resisters Dean Walcott and Kimberly Rivera granted Stays of Removal

The Federal Court has granted stays of removal in the cases of Kimberly Rivera (and her family) and Dean Walcott. More details will follow as they become available. In the mean time, these are very important victories for Dean, Kim, and all of the U.S. Iraq war resisters in Canada. The court rulings are in keeping with the desire of Canadians to allow war resisters to stay in Canada.

But we urgently need to stop the imminent deportation of CLIFF CORNELL.

Cliff was ordered to leave Canada January 22nd, but has won a brief reprieve. We urgently need to keep pressure of the Conservative Government to do the right thing and implement the Parliamentary motion from June 2008 by stopping all deportation proceedings against war resisters and granting them permanent resident status in Canada.
