Slovenia Travel Insurance News

After living in Canada for over nine years, Robert Zaveljcina and Michaela Jokic-Zaveljcina were given deportation notices. Their two-year-old son, Michael Zaveljcina and his seven-month-old brother Alex, both born in Peterborough, will be deported to Slovenia with their parents, despite the fact that the children have never been to Slovenia.

Eager to build a new life, the Zaveljcina began working as soon as they were legally able to do so. After seven years, they felt secure enough to build their family. Father Bill Moloney who baptized Michael and Alex said he does not know what is happening. He added that the children are the sweetest little kids and their parents are giving them a great example. Father Moloney asked people to be emphatic and cry out that it is unjust.

The Zaveljcinas moved to Peterborough after being faced with discrimination in Slovenia. Mr. Zaveljcina was a Slovenian but his wife was half-Croatian and half-Serbian. Many of his fellow Slovenian back home see the marriage as a betrayal because most Slovenians harbor hatred towards the other nations of the former Yugoslav Republic.

Mr. Zaveljcina said they love Canada because it gives everyone a chance. He added that they want their children to grow up learning that everyone is equal and that their race does not matter.
