Vietnam War Resisters in Canada: A Guide to Web Sites
Of particular interest are these two sections:
(1) Seeking Sanctuary: Draft Dodgers
Archive: Twenty TV and radio segments from CBC Archives.
(2) Draft-Age Americans in Canada
History: A section from Forging our Legacy : Canadian Citizenship and Immigration, 1900-1977, a book by Valerie Knowles commissioned by the federal department. The 1970 photograph of the Montreal American Deserters Committee can also be found in: Spencer, William, “Why they won’t fight,” Weekend magazine 20:6 (Feb. 7, 1970) 2. There the individuals are identified as: Larry Svirchev, Jim Weeks, Paul Petri, Steve Argo, John Nichols (left to right).
Special Note: The above dead link became a matter of controversy in 2009 because material was removed from the Government of Canada web site (possibly reflecting present Canadian government attitude toward Iraq War deserters in Canada). On 4 July 2009 Sue Bailey of Canadian Press reported on Ken Marciniec’s access to information attempts to discover why the information disappeared. Text without photo can still be viewed by scrolling down to the subheading Draft-age Americans in Canada on this archival web site. The book is still available in libraries.
