A reminder: if you're in Toronto tomorrow morning, you can attend a morning vigil for war resister Jeremy Hinzman and his family. The federal court will be hearing Hinzman's appeal of the denial of his application to remain in Canada on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds. I'll be there, and I'll also be attending the hearing.
When: Tuesday, February 10, 8:30 a.m.
Where: Outside the Federal Court, 180 Queen Street West (west of University, Osgoode subway)
Why: Because a majority of Canadians believe war resisters should be allowed to stay in Canada, because the Iraq War is illegal and immoral and Canada should support people who refused to participate in it, because Jeremy Hinzman is the father of two young children (including a Canadian citizen), because no one should go to prison for acting on his moral beliefs. Because we want Canada to be a refuge from militarism. Because it's the right thing to do.
