Federal Government saves foreign-funded climate extremist from deportation 
Did the Liberals intervene to stop a foreign-funded climate extremist from getting deported?

The Federal Government most likely intervened and prevented the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) attempt to deport a foreign-funded climate extremist who’s been arrested 10 times.

Pakistani climate activist Zain Haq had his deportation confirmed and scheduled for no later than April 22 after the CBSA’s latest attempt to deport him was finally successful. 

However, Haq’s deportation was ceased moments before the scheduled date, potentially sourced by the Federal Government. 

“All I heard is I’m not getting deported Sunday,” Haq said last week.

Haq said he was contacted by the office of Liberal MP Joyce Murray on Friday, who urged him to keep his phone nearby. 

Shortly thereafter, Haq received a phone call from a CBSA case officer who told him he could stay in Canada. 

Haq’s lawyer, Randall Cohn, speculated that the federal cabinet was “listening and paying attention to the timing and decided to step in.”

Haq has been arrested roughly 10 times, faced charges of mischief, openly admitted to breaking Canadian laws, and acknowledged he received foreign funding for his extreme climate actions. 

The 23-year-old moved to Canada in 2019 on study permit he later violated and got placed on academic probation from a British Columbia University.

Haq has spent his 5 years in Canada working closely with two extreme environmental groups, creating dangerous blockades, demanding the termination of fossil fuels, and the elimination of all old-growth logging. 

Haq is a member of Extinction Rebellion and co-founder of Save Old Growth, the province’s most radical, far-reaching climate organizations. 

Within a few months of moving to Canada, Haq participated in his first blockade and was charged with mischief a few years later for causing bridge closures. According to a 2023 court decision, some of these blockades “interfered with emergency vehicles trying to access St. Paul’s Hospital.” 

“Mr. Haq has shown disdain for the rule of law and he has publicly encouraged others to break the law while publicly celebrating his arrest,” the decision read. 

Prosecutors attempted to charge Haq with a 60-day jail sentence but was given 61 days of house arrest instead. 

Haq openly admitted to breaking the Canadian law and stated he will continue to do so until his climate demands were seen through. 

“Every single day we will be disrupting the highways in multiple locations, both on the Island and in Vancouver,” he warned British Columbians in 2022.

Additionally, Haq acknowledged he received foreign funding for his extreme actions, acquiring $170,000 from the Climate Emergency Fund based in California. 

“We’re not trying to be popular,” he said, adding “Civil disobedience historically is about challenging a way of life.”

A life that will remain in Canada with thanks to the Liberal Party.
