Immigration department cites differences in 'culture and religion'
A Vancouver woman has been barred from living in Canada with her husband, partly because he is Muslim and she was born Christian, CBC News has learned.
Selena Paskalidis married Sadaqat Hussain, of Pakistan, last year. Canada has denied him entry to Canada, citing concerns because the two "differ in culture and religion."
She is now preparing to move to the Middle East and leave her family and job behind. It was a difficult choice she felt was forced on her by the government.
