95. It is silly thinking on your part
Edited on Mon Nov-17-03 02:12 PM by Trek234
to believe Canada will not adhere to agreements it has made.

If Canada had no intent of returning those escaping a US draft they would not have made the agreement.

Also - Canada today is not like the Canada of Vietnam. They return TONS of people unless they have legit legal grounds for asylum, or other legal authorization to be in the nation. Because they have made an agreement with the US you will no longer have legit legal grounds to stay in the nation unless you can secure something along the lines of a work/settlement visa which, if you look up the procedure for doing so, would likely be extremely difficult for you. You're not a doctor, right?

Then, even if you secure such a visa, you will still be wanted in the US for the draft and will still face extradition.
