If you say are going to Canada is it a crime?

I’ve heard a number of people say if there is a draft they are going to go to Canada. Now, I know it is a crime to dodge the draft. However, is it a crime to say you plan to dodge the draft if there is one?

IANAL, but I’d guess it’s highly unlikely. Now I’m going to go run a red light or two.

If you’re drafted and THEN run to Canada to avoid serving, that might be a different story.

IANAL either, but I suspect that this would not be considered a crime unless you actually do take steps to avoid being drafted.

Kinda like saying that once you’ve calculated your income tax for the past year, if you owe anything you won’t pay it.

Stating it doesn’t mean squat. Following through and not paying what you owe has consequences.
