Here's Your Haram Fix
Slight Improvement in Storage

It's All Good

I was cleaning up my room today and I came across a letter I received late last month. I had forgotten about it. Then I realized that I've been unintentionally deceiving my readers for all this time!

You see, I received a letter from Citizenship and Immigration Canada some months ago. It told me to visit the Immigration Office within the city for an interview in late October. I put on my best clothes and went there on the scheduled day. Then in late November I got another letter.

At the top of my blog it says "convention-refugee". But that's not correct.

I'm now a permanent resident of Canada.

My permanent resident card was enclosed in the letter which I received in late November. I put it on the side of my room with my already-read books and I forgot about it -- out of sight, out of mind. Today I was throwing out old receipts and tidying up when I came upon it.

I just had to share!

Here's the essential history of my case:

  1. September 09, 2006: I write about the horrible meeting which took place with the refugee board on the previous day. This meeting was for setting the time for the hearing, during which a judge would decide whether my refugee claim has merit or not.
  2. September 09, 2006: The Blogosphere on fire!
  3. September 25, 2006: Why I am asking for asylum in Canada.
  4. November 09, 2006: Citizens of the free world -- from Israel, Australia, Britain, the US and Canada -- donate enough money to cover my legal fees.
  5. January 04, 2007: A most brief description of the hearing.
  6. January 08, 2007: A detailed post about the fateful hearing.

That makes sense. Your blog has contributed to my education.

I am glad that the system was able to see the strength of your case. My faith in this society was strengthened by the decision and our country was strengthened by your inclusion.

(belated) Congratulations!

Somewhat off topic: have you ever considered writing a book about your life experiences? I'll bet you could use your blog posts as an outline for a great autobiography that includes your philosophy on religion, Western Civilization, economics, et cetera.

Saul Wall: Thanks.

Classical Liberal: I've thought about writing a book. Though, the earliest I'll start on it will be in the next decade. And you're right: I'll use a lot of my blog material for it.
