Legal efforts are underway to stop a mother and her disabled daughter in Saskatoon from being deported to Romania Wednesday.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada wants to send the women back to the country because the 22-year-old daughter is deemed to be medically ineligible.

Boglarka Kincses has cerebral palsy and Ottawa says she places an excessive demand on the country’s health care and social systems.

Her mother, Reka Kincses told CBC News Boglarka has never accessed any social programs.

“She doesn’t need any kind of medical care,” Kincses said. “She just needs many love and proper care.”

More than 200 people have signed letters of support, calling on federal officials to reconsider.

Kincses’ lawyer has applied for a federal court hearing to stop the deportation.

They arrived in Saskatoon in 2009 under a provincial immigration program. Reka had a temporary visa to work in a care home but has since been denied a renewal.

A 2003 study put the economic cost for people with CP in the US at $921,000 per individual, including lost income.

Lucita Charles was found stabbed to death in her north-end apartment on Monday.
On Tuesday, Toronto police issued a warrant Barrett, who was believed to be in east-end Toronto or the Oshawa area.
Charles’ friend, who didn’t want to reveal her name, told ctvtoronto.ca that Barrett was Charles’ boyfriend and was helping to raise her seven-year-old son. The boy reportedly suffers from cerebral palsy.
Charles, 28, came to Canada from St. Lucia about five years ago so that her son could receive adequate care, the friend said.

1. Lucita Charles (black woman) came to Canada from St. Lucia 5 years ago, with a 2 year old boy who has cerebral palsy.
2. David and Sophie Barlagne (white family) came to Canada from the French island of Guadeloupe 5 years ago, with a 2 year old daughter who has cerebral palsy.
3. Charles came to Canada so that her son would receive “adequate care”. Apparently, her son’s situation was not deemed as posing “an excessive demand on provincial health and social services” as she was not denied permanent residence in Canada.
4. David and Sophie Barlagne’s daughter, who has cerebral palsy, was considered a burden for the provincial health and the family was denied permanent residence in Canada.

  1. When this family was accepted under a provincial immigration programme, how is it that nobody had any objections?
    Who did such a sloppy job that they were accepted?
    Also, another question: the mother lost her work visa in 2009, so how has she been living since then?
    Her visa was not renewed probably to be replaced by a Filipina.
    Messy story, need more details.

  2. While cerebral palsy is an unfortunate iatrogenic condition, we cannot afford to be the ward of every disabled person in the world.
