Zunera Ishaq immigrated from Pakistan to Canada in 2008 and has been at the center of a legal battle, over the past three years regarding the right of an individual about…

The look of unhappiness from the people living there could be the lack of attention from the caretakers as well as the lack of visitors. I recalled the man in the lunchroom asking for water and being ignored. I also thought of Emma…
