Family may be forced to return from Canada

A former Caistor family’s dream of starting a new life in Canada is at risk, despite having lived and worked there for nearly four years.

Shaun and Lesley Caborn settled with their two teenage sons in Lethbridge, Alberta, and since moving to Canada they have had a daughter, Grace, who is nearly three.

Despite having a steady job with a haulage company, and having bought a house via a government backed scheme, changing regulations and processing delays means that the family’s dream might be over.

Their heartbreak is compounded by their 19-year-old son’s possible eligibility to stay in Canada, which could mean splitting up the family.

“Please sign,” said one friend. “This is so unfair for Lesley and her family and thousands of others.”
