Perspective: Let Beverly Braham Stay … Cruel, Heartless To Deport

There has to be something radically wrong for any government, especially with a Trudeau brand name to be contemplating deportation of a mother and a tiny infant who is a Canadian family.  We respect laws but the law can be an “ass”.

Blacks Built Canada

It was the run away slaves through the underground networks etc. that helped to build Canada.  Hence now prosperity, so black lives matter.  Reports that an infant and mother Beverly Braham have been placed in detention pending upcoming removal and or deportation from Canada is disgraceful to say the least.

Married To Canadian

Reports that the black Jamaican woman is married to a Canadian citizen and is being sponsored is more bizarre. Canada never separates families like this. This is not what any Canadian government should be trumping. Such conduct is expected in “Trumpville” somewhere north of the Canadian border. This is Trump-like behaviour.  We can do without such an epidemic.

Trudeau Canada

Pierre Trudeau must be turning in his grave. It was in the 60s and 70s that a wave of West Indians, especially Jamaicans went to build Canada … and Oh!  They made a positive mark on the Canadian society.

We hope PM Justin Trudeau will not tarnish the legacy of his late father by not stepping in to stop this madness.   Beverly Braham must be allowed to stay in Canada, if for no other reason on humanitarian grounds. This is the right thing to do. It would be cruel and heartless to do otherwise.

What is your perspective?  This is ours.
