"Immigration and refugee policies in Canada are no longer just a joke. They are life-threatening to Canadians and to the rest of the world."

"... 40,632 outstanding deportation orders on Immigration Canada's books for the last six years. The department is actively pursuing 11,108 of them. Of the remaining 29,524, officials concede that they have no idea where 20,743 of them are"

My sister was murdered by an immigrant who was ordered to be deported after being found as a danger to citizens and was released then committed murder!

March 30, 2011 my Twin sister Jenna Cartwright was murdered by Bashir Gaashaan.

Bashir Gaashaan is an illegal immigrant that came to Canada with his family in the early '90's.

We reported my sister missing April 12, 2011. Jenna's partially clothed body was found in a ditch near Olds, AB May 3, 2011. We are told she died March 30, 2011. Bashir Gaashaan has been charged with first degree murder, unlawful confinement and indignity to human remains. Trial is in February 2014.

In 2009 Bashir Gaashaan was ordered to be deported after being found as a danger to citizens as well as a flight risk. The CBSA fought for him to be deported while the Immigration board let him go on conditions. Bashir then fled and Immigration board put out a warrant for his arrest. He then committed more crimes, then Murder until he was finally caught and put in remand.  

Bashir has a long list of criminal acts he has committed in the past. Bashir was ordered to stay residing in Toronto, Ontario but kept coming to Red Deer, Alberta. Bashir has been charged with assault, theft, drug trafficking and much more and all crimes were committed in Red Deer, AB.

Why is it that the government did not deport him after his first crime? Why did the government not ensure he was not leaving Toronto? It took him murdering my sister for him to be arrested. All of his other charges will piggy back on the murder charge. It took 2 years until we found out how she died and we are still awaiting trial as Bashir does not want to be deported and is trying to find ways around it.

Bashir will serve his sentence in Canada and then he will be sent back to Somalia. Why do we have to pay the price for his crime, the hurt the pain and also all of us tax payers have to pay for him to stay in jail!!

We need this to stop! we need our government to be stricter and to ensure Canadian citizens are not in danger. This petition will help with us to pursue a law suit against the government, and most importantly we want this to never happen to another family again.

Please sign this petition not only for Jenna's family and friends, but for her 4 year old daughter Jayda who will never know her mother!

This petition has nothing to do with race. My family is not racist what so ever, this has to do with immigration laws and we would like to make this clear as we are noticing some are basing this on racism. The issue is not race, or religion.

 Please share via email, FaceBook and Twitter. Please sign this petition if you agree, we need alot of signatures to make a difference!
