System Flaws and Their Impacts to Families
Play • 46 min

When Napoléon met his Waterloo, it was his life’s defeat – when Gideon Christian met his Waterloo, he found his life’s destiny.

 Canada was only supposed to be a pit stop on his journey to the United States from his country of birth in Nigeria. But Christian was so impressed by Waterloo, ON, and the land of the Maple Leaf, he chose to stay and eventually began the process to sponsor his wife to join him in what would be their new country.

 That’s when the nightmare started. 

 Christian had all the approvals from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada – he had that email saying his wife was approved. So, he flew back to Nigeria to help her move. That’s when they were told that email… was sent in error! He should go home, and she should stay home.
