NDP MP Calls For Ottawa To Probe U.S. Deserter's Arrest

Being absent without leave from a foreign military is not an extraditable offence in Canada. That is why NDP Member of Parliament, Alex Atamanenko, is asking the Harper government to look into the arrest of an American military deserter in Nelson, B.C.

Atamanenko suspects the police were responding to a request from the U.S. army when they put Kyle Snyder in jail.

Wearing only his boxer shorts, Snyder was held in a cell for several hours before he was released after agreeing to a future meeting with immigration officials.

Snyder was not charged and police won't say what prompted his arrest.



The globe and mail did an interesting article regarding this sort of nonsense last week: Police doing U.S. army's 'bidding,' group says

Thanks for that! I missed that last week ... amazing. The thought that Canadian police forces are working with the US military is disturbing if that is in fact what is happening. BUT with all of the other evidence of how cozy the Harperites are with the Bush admin .... am I surprised??

This kind of thing may not last much longer, because the Bush Reich becomes a lamer duck on a daily basis.
