Yes a member of Parliament has spoken up in the House of Commons on behalf of the Maeng family, the Korean family, residents of Moncton New Brunswick for several years, and contributing members of that community, who are facing imminent deportation because their younger son has autism and epilepsy. No it is not the Conservative Member of Parliament from Moncton, Robert Goguen, who has made no public comment on the serious threat facing the Maeng family and their 15 year old autistic son. It was Vancouver Kingsway NDP MP Don Davies who asked the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to review this troubling decision, a decision of which many Canadians are ashamed:
It is encouraging to see a Member of Parliament standing up for the Maeng family. It is sad though that an MP from Canada's other coast has taken up their cause while local MP's remain silent.
Thank you Mr. Davies.
