March 30, 2011 my Twin sister Jenna Cartwright was murdered by Bashir Gaashaan.
Bashir Gaashaan is an illegal immigrant that came to Canada with his family in the early '90's.
We reported my sister missing April 12, 2011. Jenna's partially clothed body was found in a ditch near Olds, AB May 3, 2011. We are told she died March 30, 2011. Bashir Gaashaan has been charged with first degree murder, unlawful confinement and indignity to human remains. Bashir first pleaded guilty to second degree murder and then when his preliminary hearing came he decided to not sign any documentation or the statement of facts and pleaded not guilty. Trial in now in February 2014.
Bashir has a long list of criminal acts he has committed in the past. Bashir was ordered to stay residing in Toronto, Ontario but kept coming to Red Deer, Alberta. Bashir has been charged with assault, theft, drug trafficking and much more and all crimes were committed in Red Deer, AB.
Why is it that the government didn't deport him after his first crime? why did the government not ensure he was not leaving Toronto. It took him murdering my sister for him to be arrested. All of his other charges will piggy back on the murder charge... so he may serve 15 years in jail TOTAL! it took 2 years until we found out how she died and we are still awaiting trial as Bashir does not want to be deported and is trying to find ways around it.
Bashir will serve his sentence in Alberta and then be shipped back to his country Somalia. Why do we have to pay the price for his crime, the hurt the pain and also all of us tax payers have to pay for him to stay in jail!!
We need this to stop! we need our government to be stricter and to ensure Canadian citizens are not in danger. This petition will help with us to pursue a law suit against the government, and most importantly we want this to never happen to another family again.
Please sign this petition not only for Jenna's family and friends, but for her 4 year old daughter Jayda who will never know her mother!
This petition has nothing to do with race. My family is not racist what so ever, this has to do with immigration laws and we would like to make this clear as we are noticing some are basing this on racism. The issue is not race, or religion.
Please share via email, facebook and twitter. Please sign this petition if you agree, we need alot of signatures to make a difference!
