good morning, mr kenney, we haven't forgotten you

Yesterday Jason Kenney made an appearance at a Toronto hotel. Like most of the Immigration Minister's activities these days, this one was not publicized. No matter. Members of the War Resisters Support Campaign were there to greet him anyway.

The story in the Toronto Star ends with this paragraph:
A small group of supporters of the American war resisters in Canada picketed outside the Sutton Place Hotel where Kenney was speaking. Former U.S. soldier Kimberly Rivera has been living in Toronto with her family for two years fighting deportation to the United States. Her three months in Iraq, she said this morning, made her realize "It was wrong for me. Every person, no matter what they wear or what they believe deserves to be treated the same." Rivera's next court hearing is July 8.
