WINNIPEG/TORONTO: Vigilers pray for Canada to stop deportation of Robin Long and all war resisters

As part of a nation-wide day of action, Christian Peacemaker Team members Joel Klassen and Doug Pritchard led one hundred and fifty participants in a 10 July Winnipeg vigil, at the People's Summit of the Mennonite Churches of Canada and the U.S. The vigilers called upon the Canadian government to permit U.S. war resister Robin Long to stay in Canada and to implement the 3 June 2008 parliamentary motion affirming that war resisters should have the right to apply for permanent resident status.
