Mumbai Victims Remembered by Immigration Minister Kenney

In an unprecedented show of solidarity with India, Canadians and members of the Indian diaspora gathered at the Toronto International Convention Centre in Mississauga today to pay homage to the victims of the terror attacks in Mumbai.

The Mumbai terror attack on November 26 left 183 people killed and over 300 injured.

Prominent leaders, including Canadian Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, former Canadian health minister Ujjal Dosanjh, Ontario minister Harinder Takhar, Canada-India Foundation chairman Surjit Babra, MPs, and Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Christian and Jewish representatives lit candles in memory of the victims. 

Kenney said Canada was “committed to standing with India and its people in their fight against terrorists.”  He also read a message from his leader Stephen Harper in which the Canadian prime minister pledged all support to a fellow democracy in eliminating terrorism.

Migrating is a hard task for anyone. Finding a job is even harder. Once I got a job offer, things started moving rapidly. So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs. Very professional.! Hands down, money was well spent. Thanks Rania and Richard, you make an awesome team. You'll definitely have a repeat customer with me !!
