Stateless immigrant jailed for seven years while Canada tried to deport him sues for $57.5 million

OTTAWA — A man with no recognized citizenship in any country is suing the governments of Canada and Ontario after he was kept in maximum-security jails for seven years while Canada tried in vain to deport him.

It’s the latest development in the extraordinary case of Kashif Ali, who has spent three decades in legal limbo in Canada. Last year, Ali won a key court decision that challenged Canada’s ability to detain an immigrant indefinitely.
