In the meantime, please take a moment to email or phone Stockwell Day, Minister of Public Safety, and ask him to immediately stop the deportation of U.S. Iraq war resister Robin Long. (The Canadian Border Services Agency falls under his ministry).

Also ask him why the federal government is refusing to respect the clearly expressed will of Canada's Parliament, that U.S. war resisters should be allowed to stay and that deportation proceedings against them should cease?

In a recent Angus Reid poll, almost two-thirds of Canadians said they want U.S. Iraq war resisters to be allowed to stay in Canada. Demand to know why the Harper government is unwilling to be accountable to Canadians.
His deportation is currently expected to take place as early as Tuesday July 15th.

Supporters in Washington state and British Columbia will gather at Peace Arch Park beginning at 9 am Tuesday morning.

The wire services will no doubt say this is the end of the road for U.S. war resisters in Canada.  Already this week we have seen headlines such as
