Tunisian-Canadians demonstrate in Montreal

A group of Tunisian-Canadians in Montreal has asked the federal government to freeze all the Canadian assets of ousted Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his family, and to shut the country’s door if they come knocking for refuge. 

“We would like to ask Canada and other countries that if the people from this family enter a country they should be brought back to Tunisia in front of our free justice to make them accountable for everything,” said Haroun Bouazzi, the co-founder of Canadian Collective of Solidarity with the Tunisian Struggle for Social Justice.
