Laibar Singh remains in Canada!

On December 10, 2007, more than one-thousand protesters at the Vancouver Aiport helped to stop the planned deportation of Laibar Singh, a paralyzed refugee claimant from India.

On the early morning of January 9, 2008, Canadian Border Services Agency officials again tried to deport Laibar Singh, attempting to remove him from a Sikh Temple in Surrey, British Columbia. But, hundreds of protesters blocked their way.

Laibar remains with friends near Vancouver, but still faces removal.
