    Another deserter ordered to leave Canada

    TORONTO — Another U.S. war resister has been ordered to leave Canada with his family after living in Toronto for the past four years.
    Sgt. Patrick Brendan Hart, 34, was informed that he and his family do not qualify under the Pre-Removal Risk Assessment program.
    The program requires that people will not be deported if it would put them in danger or where they would face the risk of persecution.
    Their request to stay in Canada on humanitarian and compassionate grounds was also turned down.
    Hart left the U.S. military before his second deployment in Iraq because he said he believes the military occupation in that country is “illegal and unnecessary.”
    “When I was deployed in 2003, I was hearing a lot of stories that made me disgusted to be an American soldier,” said Hart.
    He and his wife, Jill, and their 6-year-old son Rian, who has epilepsy, will be deported to the U.S. on Oct. 30, although he plans to appeal the decision.
    “It’s tragic, but we expected this,” said Jill Hart.“I always say they can break our heart but can’t break our spirit.”
    Jill Hart alleges she was physically threatened by a U.S. soldier in her garage in August 2005, after her husband’s desertion.
    According to the court documents, Hart first volunteered for the Army in May 1992, after graduating from high school. He received an honorable discharge in 1995. But in May 2000, he once again joined the Army and was sent to Fort Riley, Kan.
    After the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, he said he decided to go to Iraq to protect the U.S. from foreign attack.
    Two other war resisters — Corey Glass and Jeremy Hinzman — were both ordered to leave Canada earlier this year, although the Federal Court stayed their removal orders pending appeals.
    Glass has been granted an appeal and Hinzman will hear soon whether or not he will have an appeal heard.

    I have to laugh about going to Canada...I had a soldier in my platoon when I was with the 10th MTN DIV run away to Canuck land and he didn't even set foot in OEF or OIF. We were going to the rifle range to qualify is all we were doing. He was gone for about 30 days, he got stopped at the border, and arrested by the border patrol for being AWOL. I never saw him again, cause I got sent to another base in another state.

      Oh yeah, another soldier I knew who actually re-upped in Iraq and got a FAT bonus , and when his time was to go on his 15 day leave, took his money, went home, and then ran away to Canada and didn't come back to Iraq like he was supposed to when his leave was over...When we rotated back to the states, he turned himself into the police and now he got kicked out of the Army, had to pay back the bonus, and go to the brig...as far as I know, he is still in the brig.

              Isn't Desertion a capital offence in some cases?

                    He wasn't exactly a stellar soldier to begin with. But the command let him re-up, probably cause they thought he was gonna do a 180', and then he must have heard that STEVE MILLER BAND song, "Go on take the money and run"!

                      man i didn't even know soldiers went to canada to escape from gettin deployed until i saw that movie "stop-loss". it opened up my eyes to the army's world. in the AF you don't hear of stuff like that cuz of course we only do 6-month deployments. very few do 365's tho. i see in the neaer future we'll de goin over with an army unit and coming back with em doing an 12-18 month tour, AF is changing a lot. we're not the ChairForce anymoremy group got tasked again, goin to the same place i went to before but then it got cancelled. i'm sure if i went back there i would see the same soldiers i did when i was there.

                        LOL Wouldn't it be better for them to run to Mexico or South America? They don't have extradition with the US, I think?
