All are welcome!

A family-friendly picnic-BBQ in solidarity with the Chaudhry family, a family of 5 from Pakistan fighting to stay in Canada. The event will offer the opportunity to meet the family, learn about the case, sample some of their delicious food (they have a business plan for opening a Halal restaurant in Halifax), sign a letter of support, and enjoy a fun holiday picnic. This July 1st, come show your support to those who are suffering the injustices of the Canadian immigration system.

About the Chaudhry Family: The Chaudhry family are a family of five living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Well-established members of the broader community, they are facing an imminent deportation order to Pakistan, where they face violence, or death. We need to collect support letters from as many community members as possible to improve their chances of winning an application to stay on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.
