The death of a Haitian migrant sparked new concerns around Quebec’s Roxham road border crossing

The recent death of 44-year-old Haitian migrant Fritznel Richard near Quebec’s Roxham Road has sparked a passionate discourse throughout the province regarding how to address the surge in asylum seekers crossing into Canada via unofficial ports of entry. According to provincial police reports, Richard was attempting to reunite with his family in the US and tragically perished due to hypothermia after becoming lost. From January to November of 2022, the RCMP intercepted a shocking 34,478 asylum seekers who attempted entry into Quebec without using official ports – an indication that this figure vastly outweighs Canada’s other provinces’ intake of only 316.
