An advocacy group for female inmates says it is concerned about that the Canada Border Services Agency is attempting to deport a Halifax woman in serious medical distress. Darlene MacEachern of the Elizabeth Fry Society says a hearing will be held today for Fliss Cramman by the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada at the Dartmouth General Hospital. (The Elizabeth Fry Society says the woman was born in England, but was brought to Canada when she was eight years old and was unaware of her citizenship issues until she was jailed for drug offences two years ago. A spokeswoman for the Canada Border Services Agency was not immediately available for comment.)
