The Canadian Arab Federation (CAF) is currently fighting a legal battle against Jason Kenney in the Federal Court regarding his abrupt and unwarranted decision to cut federal funding in March 2009, as Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. Our case is a strong one but it urgently needs your financial support to make a victory possible. CAF’s legal team is not billing for its work (and hasn’t been billing since it took the case), but it currently faces thousands of dollars in unavoidable costs to cover disbursements and costs associated with the proceedings in the court. By contrast, the government has countless resources to fight its case – a fleet of full-time lawyers and unlimited access to the mainstream media and Canadian tax dollars to fund their legal fees. CAF needs to raise $10,000 to cover disbursements and costs associated with the proceedings in the court.
Please consider making a donation to the CAF case; a case where our victory represents a victory for free speech in Canada.
The government of Canada must never be allowed to use the power of the state to penalize any individual or group that criticizes government policy.
