Dear Hon. Day

RE: Deportation of Behnood Saadatkhani

We request you to authorize Behnood Saadatkhani who had been ordered to go back to Iran on May 7, 07. Behnnod to stay in Canada since he needs medical treatment .

Behnnod is suffering from Schizophrenia and needs treatment. He is kept for several months at the detention center in Ottawa. Because of his illness he obviously can't recognize the consequences of his deportation. He is not capable of making the right decisions on his own. So he needs discipline, authority, --- and guidance. So, he needs help to improve his life style and decisions in the near future.

Behnood came to Canada with his mother and smaller brother when he was 12 years old in 1996.
Behnood was raised here for the last 11 years. He is not familiar with the language and the culture of Iran, he would suffer badly if he is sent back. If you send him back to Iran, he is done, --- he is finished.
Behnood 's mother and brother are Canaan citizen.

We request you to meet Behnood 's mother who has been working long hours on a minimum to support his family in last decade.
Please stop deportation order to give his family a chance to treat Behnood . As a free society we feel obligation to help those who needs our help in order to make a better and safer society.

Thank you for you concerns.

Yours truly

I am a mother of a son who has a mental illness and I think that the Canadian Government has truly violated the human rights of this particular person. I feel ashamed of our government and how they have treated this person and this family and disregarded their pleas for help for their son.

Our human rights policies obviously do not apply to everyone. We have treated our animals with more dignity that we have treated these individuals.
