Haiti - Diaspora : Wyclef Jean's surprise show in Montreal
Friday afternoon, the crowd invaded the street at Plaza St-Hubert while our international star Wyclef Jean gave a surprise spectacle in Montreal, near the intersection of St-Hubert and St-Zotique streets right next to Restaurant Kwizinn. Jean shared the stage with musicians Marie-Josée Lord and Mélanie Renaud.

Jean, a native of Haiti, spoke to Haitians seeking asylum in Canada by crossing the border illegally http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21850-haiti-canada-more-than-6-400-haitians-have-illegally-crossed-the-quebec-border.html pushed by the fear of the non-renewal of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the United States and their possible expulsion, which affects about 60,000 Haitians http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21037-haiti-flash-extension-of-tps-procedures-to-follow.html

"To the refugees that's in the dome, Donald Trump made a promise," sang Jean in a freestyle, alluding to the U.S. president's campaign trail assertion last year in Miami that he wanted to be Haitians' champion continuing in his Rap "please, Donald Trump, keep your promise because the refugees can't go back home. I mean, out in Haiti, they can't take 50,000 people [...]"

Concluding by lauching to the crowd "I love Canada, the people are so nice. I love America, but things are crazy right now."
