U.S. War Resisters in Canada Ask Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Let Them Stay

Toronto, August 10 (RHC)-- U.S. war resisters who went to Canada to avoid serving in Iraq and Afghanistan are asking Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to allow them to remain in the country.

Hundreds of U.S. war resisters moved to Canada in the early 2000s but faced deportation after the election of the conservative Harper government in 2006. Resisters still in Canada say they are hoping Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s liberal government, elected last year, will make a final decision about their legal status in the country. Polls suggest a majority of Canadians support allowing the resisters to stay.
