War Resisters Support Campaign

I just learned about the War Resisters Support Campaign and I signed their petition:

The War Resisters Support Campaign, a broad-based coalition of community organizations, has launched a petition aimed at Canada’s federal government to allow US war resisters who refuse to fight in Iraq to have refuge in Canada.

Initial signatories include June Callwood, David Suzuki, Maude Barlow, Shirley Douglas, Naomi Klein, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Amir Khadir, Paul Cliche and M.G. Vassanji.

The Americans talk so much about Freedom, but they have so little of it left. So we, as Canadians, should remain true to our tradition and continue to share our Freedom with others. May the Canadian government have the wisdom and courage to stand up to the American government and welcome her refugees.
