Tonight in Vancouver, there will be a vigil to honour the life of Lucia Vega Jimenez, demand justice and call for reform.

On December 28, 2013, Lucia Vega Jimenez committed suicide while in the custody of the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA). Vega Jimenez hung herself on December 19 and died on December 28. The Agency subsequently kept her death a secret for more than a month and according to some reports forced her sister, Martha, to sign a non-disclosure secrecy agreement once she arrived in Canada to support her sister in the hospital.
