On Feb 20, 2012, lawyers for Mohammad Mahjoub - a Torontonian who has been in jail or on house arrest for more than 11 and a half years without charges or trial, on secret evidence obtained under torture - will appear in Court to ask that all proceedings against him be tossed out. In the summer, government officials entered Mr. Mahjoub's lawyers' room in the Federal Court, seized boxes of documents, viewed and read the materials and then mixed them up (commingled) with their own government documents. This represents a serious breach of solicitor-client privilege, an essential part of a fair trial.
In another tragic incident, 11 migrant workers died in a car crash in Ontario this month. It is not the first time. In September 2010, Ralston White and Paul Roach died while working at a farm in Southern Ontario. In December 2009, Alexander Bondorev, Aleksey Blumberg, Fayzullo Fazilov, Vladimir Korostin, migrant workers without full status, fell to their deaths when the scaffolding they were working on collapsed in half. Year after year, migrants without full status die in Ontario and neither the government nor their employers have taken any serious remedial action.
These deaths represent only the surface of a phenomenon

Jason Kenney, Minister of Censorship and Deportation, is making headlines again with yet another parliamentary scandal. A series of access to information requests have revealed that Kenney's office organized a bogus citizenship ceremony broadcast on Sun Media (the aspiring Fox News Network of Canada). “Let’s do it. We can fake the oath,” said one Sun staffer, and arranged for six federal bureaucrats to stand in as "immigrants." Kenney has refused to apologize for this disgusting photo-op.
On January 17, Toronto City Hall votes on budget 2012. Though mayor Rob Ford has insisted that Toronto has over a $700 million deficit, we now know that the City actually has a $154 million surplus.
Since December 2010, when we began mobilizing against the Ford agenda, No One Is Illegal - Toronto has insisted that we need to fight against the global austerity agenda by creating more services, particularly for people without immigration status who have historically been shut out of Toronto. Those that work and use the services, we insist, must be the ones that decide what happens to them - not millionaire politicians.
On January 17, at 5:30pm, come to City Hall to demand justice for undocumented people and migrant workers in this city. Come to ensure that the workers in this city keep working and providing services to more people, not less.
