Don't Let Them Send Mamadou Back, Help Him Stay!

This petition had 3,234 supporters


Canada can always use hard workers, and I say any immigrant who wants to contribute is a valuable asset to our nation. Here is one of them. Mamadou arrived in Canada recently via foot, risking his life to live in Canada. He left behind a past wherein he witnessed his father murdered by rebels, and his family home burnt down. He does not know where any of his relatives are today, but he knows that he wants to call someplace home. Having been recently chased by immigration officers in his home in NYC (working as a taxi driver), he decided to walk through the forest to Canada where he was found by an RCMP officer who then helped him reach safety.

Unfortunately, Mamadou might need more help than that if he hopes to stay. It has been three weeks since Mamadou left the refugee detention centre, three weeks since he left the hospital, and little over a month since he was found collapsed in the snow, too frozen to move.

Help him embark on a stable, prosperous journey in our community today. Someone who has had to wait nearly their entire life before being able to build one (without ever giving up hope), is surely someone who will fight the good fight and be a good role-model citizen/neighbour for us all.

Let us urge Mr. Coderre to be in contact with the CIC, and offer his support on behalf of Mamadou today. Read more here:
