Should Ali Sarikhani of Montreal be deported back to Iran because of his drug use?
I remember there was some uncertainty about how it would work. Different from the other provinces in Canada, Quebec has its own immigration treaty with the federal government. So if Ali Sarikhani entered the country through the Quebec program, it could be more complicated to have him deported. But for a serious matter like this, it should be possible to have him removed from the country.
An arrest or conviction in Iran might not show up on a criminal record check in Canada. If Ali Sarikhani lied on his immigration application, that could be another reason to deport him. You should ask Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration department to investigate his immigration application.
