Deserter Without a Home

This courtesy of LGF, the Candadian government basically said you can run but you can't hide up here.

TORONTO - An immigration panel in Toronto has denied refugee status to a former paratrooper who fled the United States to evade the war in Iraq.

The Immigration and Refugee Board members said Thursday that Jeremy Hinzman, 26, hadn’t convinced them that he would be persecuted if he returned to his native land.

Hinzman faces a court martial if he goes back and could be sentenced to five years in jail as a deserter.
