Canada Border Services Agency has declared that Iraq War resister Kimberly Rivera and her family must return to the United States by September 20.

Rivera came to Canada in 2007 to avoid re-deployment to Iraq. She currently lives in Toronto with her husband and four children.

If she returns to the United States, Rivera will likely face a court martial and significant jail time, as well as a felony conviction.

An emergency community meeting has been scheduled for next Wednesday, September 5, at the Parkdale United Church, 171 Dunn Avenue.
