This petition had 3,818 supporters

A former soldier from West Yorkshire has spoken of his frustration at being forced to leave the UK in a bid to keep his family together. Ray Coulson, from Bradford, may have to leave the country, after the Home Office ruled his Canadian wife and three teenage children should be deported.

The Home Office say Ray's wife Shinie can reapply, but Ray says he can no longer afford to pay the associated legal fees. He has now made the heartbreaking decision to uproot and move to Canada, just to be with his family.
