Comments: Yesterday I read of the pride Canadians felt as they were able to show to the family who had done honor killings that Canada is not barbaric and that Canada is part of the developed world. Not today I wonder what type of country Canada is where the capriciousness of a judge can put an end to an innocent man's life and family. Kavoos doesn't belong in Iran, please remember your ideals and act accordingly.

Comments: Being French and directly related to Kavoos friend, i'm surprised and disturbed by such a treatment of the Canadian justice. In France we always state the fair and progressive justice system of Canada as an exemple for many. Please, do what is necessary to correct the obvious flaws in the procedure and give Kavoos the human rights and respect he desserves and reflect the values and commitments of Canada as a country home of many foreigner origin people which is the very essence of your country and its beauty. Don't deliver a blind an inhuman treatment to a dignified person which do by any means not desserve this neither his family and friends and honor your contry at the level of its reputation and soul.

Comments: J'invite les autorités Canadiennes à se rendre compte de l'incroyable impacte negative de cette nouvelle: je vous ecris depuis l'Afrique et personne ici ne pourait imaginer ce genre de traitement de la part de votre nation. Cette incomprehension devient totale quand on connait en plus la personnalité et les qualités humaines de la personne concernée. Je ne parle meme pas de l'impensable destination que vous envisagez pour cette expulsion. J'espere que des procedures d'appel permettront de corriger cette erreur, faute de quoi vous demontreriez un terrible disfonctionnement de l'administration en charge de ce dossier. Pour finir, je voudrais vous informer sur un point que nombre de mes compatriotes ne réalisent ou ne veulent reconnaitre: dans sa configuration actuelle, l'iran n'est malheureusement plus le pays de beaucoup de ceux qui on choisi de le quitter. Renvoyer Kavoos en Iran ne serait pas l'expulser chez lui, mais l'exiler à nouveau. Une peine que RIEN ne saurait justifier.

Name: Romana Apfler on Feb 1, 2012
Comments: To whom it may concern. My name is Romana Apfler, I am a citizen of Austria, and I am writing to draw your attention to the case of Kavoos Soofi, a dear friend, that has been living in Canada for 8 years already. He arrived from Iran on student visa in 2004. Kavoos was ordered all of a sudden the deportation to Iran on Feb 07, 2012. He came on student visa, he studied, he worked in Canada (his work permit expires in 2014!) and he was never on wellfare or in any trouble with Canadian authorities. He is very active in the community, has friends from all backgrounds - all of his friends are outraged about the inhumane treatment and superficiality of the Canadian immigration office. Kavoos has been actively advocating for human rights in Iran. His constant political activities since the 2009 Iranian Presidential Election have been projected in different social networks and webpages and broadcasted by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) national TV dated Jan 28, 2012, which can be found here: http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/News/TV_Shows/The_National/1233408557/ID=2191084344 This deportation presents a great risk and danger for my friend life, most certain it means torture and even death, because he was actively and visibly demonstrating in Canada against the Iranian regime. On January 11, 2012, Kavoos Soofi appeared before the Immigration Office of Canada in Toronto to receive their decision with respect to his refugee application for protection under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Aid. His application was rejected. The official's initial bail request was changed later that day to `detention until deportation'. Kavoos was arrested and since then has been detained by Immigration Canada where he will remain until his date of deportation back to Iran on Feb. 07, 2012. Kavoos has started a hunger strike - today is the 8th day - in protest against inhumane behavior of Immigration office of Canada, He chose to come to Canada in pursuit of a dignified and just life, one where his worth as a member of the society is respected. During this time, Kavoos has completely rebuilt his life within Canadian society. Kavoos has no family in Iran. His mother,dad, brother, sister, ALL live in North-America. It makes no sense for him to be deported where his life is in absolute danger. Honorable Representative, since the UN is committed to ensuring that people being removed from the countries they have applied for refugee, are not sent to a country where they would be in danger or at risk of persecution, we humbly request your support in our plea to the government of Canada. We would greatly appreciate with heartfelt gratitude any support that you are able to offer us at this time as Feb. 7, 2012 leaves us with little time to act. A copy of petition, supporting Kavoos is also available in his web site(www.kavoos.org). Thank you for taking the time and please help. We need your support, urgently! Yours Sincerely, Romana Apfler

Name: Paula Erskine on Jan 31, 2012
Comments: Please give Kavoos, a man of exceptionally good character, a fair chance to present his case. He is being persecuted without warning by the canadian immigration system. He came in for a routine interview and was imprisoned! He has already risked his life to express his desire for freedom and democracy, and has been treated like an inhuman. He is currently on hunger strike in hopes of getting fair treatment, but after 7 days, nobody seems to care that a good man, who happens to be from Iran, and who's family life is now rooted in Canada and U.S. is being forced to deport to a place that will probably kill him. Is anyone listening? Please don't paint this picture with one brush...Are we protecting refugees that have set excellent examples in our communities of compassion and lawfulness, or are we going to persecute and then just send them away because he is not "Canadian"....we all came from immigrant families! Wake up! He needs to be granted refugee status! He will be severed from his family and friends if forced to leave Canada!

Name: Serge Crettenand on Jan 31, 2012
Comments: Mr. Kenney, All over the world, I wonder why we welcome good people to deport them after years ? I'm a swiss. I wanted to come in Canada. I've seen how Canada sort people who wish to immigrates there. I found the criterias and all this very good, thinking that at least, Canada choose the people they wish to welcome. So why, after having welcomed Kavoos, let him be in Canada for 8 years, suddenly taking the decision to deport him ? Does Canada need back his flat, job or anything else that Canada provided to him ? I really pray that it is a mistake, a confusion, and Kavoos will be free as soon as possible and be able to find the good life he had in your country. We need good politicians, with large heart, understanding and also able to take decisions that is suitable for all and helps the people. I'm really convince that deporting M. Kavoos will be of any help at all for Canada. Most respectfully, Serge Crettenand

Comments: I can attest, with 100% certainty, that deporting any 'non-criminal' individual to a Middle-Eastern country such as Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc., is paramount to a death sentence, coupled with certain 'torture'. If I were in Mr. Soofi's situation, I would prefer a death due to self starvation also! I seriously doubt that the Immigration Case Officer in this particular situation has ever left his home town, except perhaps for a 'Caribbean Vacation'.

Comments: If I have rights as a Canadian. Then I would want to live with a neighbor I trust in, that makes me feel safe. In this country we have plenty of people that are a danger in our society. The population of Canada is 34 000 000, do we only want people who make lots of money to come in this country. Animals who are bread to just work? Or have some humane people, who care for others that don't bother, but just help people. The population of USA is 200 000 000, and it's a smaller country. Look how many people love this man. Who's ever done this for anyone?

They for sure themselves did not even ask the local indian tribes who did not send their ancestors back, despite not necessary they would appear all in such a danger as him by returnign back (!!). It's a shame to call this a human-human relations!

I'm Software Development Manager working in NY for a large financial institution. Kavoos is my friend and I know him for more than 6 years. He is a good character, responsible individual and loving friend and I'm deeply sad to hear he will be deported. He is a great resident of this great country Canada and I truly believe this will not happen. We will all lose a friend and great citizen to be. Sincerely, Gabriel Popa

Comments: This man is a refugee, you can't send him to a place where he will most certainly be in danger. He pays his taxes, he supports his family, he has been ordered to pay up to $12,000 now bail. He is a deeply spiritual man who has actively campaigned for democracy and human rights. The government should reassess the mistreatment of this individual. He is an exceptional and law abiding human being. Please give him a fair chance, that is what this country is all about. People come here to start a new life and be treated equally. Please help Kavoos and sign the petition. It seems unbelieveable that anyone could be treated like this in Canada.

Why let him go? We're not letting him go easy.

Comments: . I've known Kavoos Soofi since December 2004 through the Sahaja Yoga meditation classes in North York. He's a very loving righteous person in which I always cherished his company. I believe that his deportation will be a great loss for the Canadian community as a democratic and free society, values that he always highly estimated.

Name: Anonymous on Jan 25, 2012
Comments: I have known Kavoos since he came to Canada. He has been introduced to Sahaja Yoga Meditation back in his home country Iran. He found out about our meditation classes at North York Civic Centre and joint our group. Shortly he became an active member of the Sahaja Yoga Community and grace of his work, efforts and dedication, we were able to reach to the Iranian spiritual seakers and spread within this community the teachings of Sahaja Yoga. Kavoos is a wonderful and caring person. He can make anyone feel confortable. All the children adore him even the shyest ones would go to him. I sincerely believe, it will be a mistake to deport him from Canada.
