I was watching an episode of Maude, which it’s revealed Arthur’s son, Arthur Jr, evaded the draft by moving to Canada.
I was wondering just how this worked. It would be easy enough to get across the border, but how did they avoid getting deported. I assume there was some kind of Canadian law preventing them, but then OK so they’re not deported fine, how did they get work?
I assume you have to have a work permit of some sort to work in Canada.
Also did Canada act differently toward those evading the draft, rather than those deserting the US Army and seeking refuge in Canada?
(The difference being the dodger was never in the military but moved to Canada to prevent being called up, while the deserter was in the military and then went AWOL to seek refuge in Canada)
