Last night, the "On to Ottawa" Caravan finished its second day by reaching Calgary. Along the road, we've joined gatherings and protests on our way to Ottawa.
On the way out of Metro Vancouver, we had an important first stop to make at Langley's Walnut Grove Lutheran Church. Jose Figueroa lives within the church, relying on sanctuary as he fights for the right to stay in Canada with his wife and his three Canadian-born children. A 17-year resident of Langley, Jose has been a pillar of the community. He's a hard-working, generous family man who always seems to be in good spirits. But, for the last several years, Jose has lived under the threat of deportation thanks to Canada's anti-terrorism laws.
