Bill C-440, the private member's bill that would allow US Iraq War resisters to apply for permanent residency in Canada, continues second reading at the end of this month. The second hour of Parliamentary debate will take place on Monday, September 27, and we expect a vote a couple of days after that.
Organizers with the War Resisters Support Campaign (myself included) have been working non-stop to mobilize our supporters, leaving no opposition MP unturned when it comes to this vote. More on that soon.
Meanwhile, please watch this amazing video about the campaign and Bill C-440. It's been a long time in the making, and is finally released for to the public today. Please share with everyone you know who wants to live in a Canada that is a "refuge from militarism".
