robin long sentenced to 15 months in penitentiary

War resister Robin Long has been sentenced to 15 months in a federal penitentiary, and given a dishonourable discharge.

Robin was deported to the US because, according to a federal judge, he failed to prove that he would face "irreparable harm". I consider 15 months in prison plus a life-long felony conviction irreparable harm, especially since Robin's only "crime" to refusing to kill.

Robin's punishment lies at Stephen Harper's feet.
