Pakistani Stem Cell Donor Refused Visa to Enter Canada

 

Repeated requests from doctors and politicians have yielded no results in obtaining a temporary visa for a man from Pakistan to his sister to enter Canada to donate stem cells, despite numerous letters explaining the urgency of the given situation.

Azeem Ahmed Khan, who entered Canada as a political refugee, is currently suffering from acute myeloid leukemia. In order to survive, his chances are in the hands of a visa-issuing officer in Pakistan and the government are mum in informing the patient.

Politician Peter Julian, New democrat member of Parliament, has written to CHC in Islamabad, but to no avail. “There should be no problem in approving the visa,” he said, which normally take two weeks to process.

is so much more from the source.

This Prime ministers government is bent with following USA with war on terror, that have yet to ask for one alleged child terrorist Omar Khadr to be returned to Canada. This given situation hangs in the balance, because it is the only help he can get without complications. It is sad to see politicians like Mr Harper have a crooked spine, when it comes to helping people. Even though PAkistan is on the watch list of the countries according to USA, not every one from Pakistan is terrorist.

Given that, this legitimate case has the backings of politicians and Doctors, it goes to show the sitution may turn fatal if this man is not given a chance to have the stem transplant. I dont know why Mr Harper´s government turns a deaf ear when it comes to peoples lives.

He plays politics, I hope he doesnt get to be the prime minister in the next election.

Looking at how badly they do there, no chance of seeing them win a majority because of Québec.
