Vancouver, BC. | April 11, 2023 – Migrante Canada sent out its second batch of signed petitions collected by its member organizations and other groups involved in the campaign to “Let Danilo Stay in Canada”.  

Two of the officers of Migrante Canada, Chris Sorio and Erie Maestro, dropped off the envelopes at a Canada Post office. The envelopes addressed to Immigration Minister Sean Fraser, with copies for Prime Minister Trudeau, MP Marco Mendicino, MP Marie-France Lalonde,MP Jenny Kwan, and MP Brad Redekopp were received and stamped by the Canada Post staff.

The 297 signatures in this batch were all collected from Ontario, many of them from Toronto. Migrante members in Ontario engaged the public and collected signatures at different places and public events – house visits, after-church services, community meetings, workshops, and migrant gatherings. More signed petitions will continue to be mailed out in the next few days.

Migrante Canada also created an ongoing online petition for “Let Danilo de Leon stay in Canada” and as of April 9, 2023, the online petition collected 1,535 names from across Canada and beyond.” The petition Migrante Canada created can be found here: https://www.change.org/p/let-danilo-de-leon-stay-in-canada

Migrante Canada expressed its “hope to see a comprehensive Regularization Program that is uncapped and will grant permanent resident status (not temporary permits) and will not exclude anyone. Such a Regularization Program will allow Danilo de Leon to stay in Canada, continue with his work as an essential worker and delivery person, and continue to contribute to the benefit of Canada and its people.”
