Dear Prime Minister,

As citizens, we can only encourage Leony Pavithra Lawrence, a brilliant student with a promising future and a dream to become a doctor someday.

Last year, Leony Pavithra Lawrence was granted the School Commissioner's Award at Montreal’s City Hall, even though French is her third language. In addition to her part-time job, this former student of Montreal’s Gédéon Ouimet Center stood out for her academic achievements. Having passed the French test at Cégep d'Ahuntsic, Leony plans to pursue scientific studies and hopes to become a doctor in Montreal. 

"Since Leony’s arrival in Quebec, the CSDM's teaching staff/personnel has witnessed first-hand all the efforts and the actions taken by the young lady to successfully complete and obtain a high school diploma." - Catherine Harel Bourdon, president of the CSDM. 

"She embodies perseverance not only for her youngest sister but also for her classmates. She is the pride of her family" - Stéphanie Bellenger-Heng, school commissioner in Ville-Marie.

As citizens, we must help all members of this exemplary family in terms of integration and offer them a chance to pursue their own dreams in Montreal without fearing for their safety;

All of them have been employed since their arrival in Canada, five years ago. The father is currently working as a manager in a Montreal transportation company and her brother Leo, as night auditor at the Hotel Bonaparte.

"In my life, I have been in a position where people have helped me. I am simply returning the favor."- Mr. Louis Ladouceur, current employer of her brother, who does not know her, lent her $ 15 000 to continue her studies. He knows the brother well enough to trust the Lawrence family completely. 

Mr. Prime Minister, our society would benefit enormously if Leony and her entire family were allowed to obtain a temporary resident permit for humanitarian reasons.

Do not ruin everything! Act now
