Hooray! A terrible thing will not happen tomorrow. Kim Rivera and her family will not be deported from Canada.
Kim was granted an emergency stay of removal. Federal Court Justice James Russell found, as lawyer Alyssa Manning argued, that the Pre-Removal Risk Assessment Officer who reviewed Kim's file did not take into account differential treatment being given to war resisters who speak out against the Iraq War.
I've just returned from a wonderful celebratory public meeting. I'll blog all about it tomorrow. Tonight I just wanted to share this great news.
Tonight we all breathe easier, knowing one more family is safe, at least for now. The fight continues. More tomorrow.
