American war resister Corey Glass has been given another chance to argue his case for staying in Canada.

With his looming deportation scheduled for tomorrow, the Toronto resident was given a reprieve this afternoon by the Federal Court, his lawyer said. He would have been the first U.S. army deserter deported from the country.

"He's been granted a temporary stay," said his lawyer, Alyssa Manning, of Parkdale Community Legal Services, shortly after receiving notification of the ruling this afternoon.

While no reasoning was provided in the initial ruling, handed down by Deputy Justice Orville Frenette, Manning had argued yesterday that the immigration board had erred in denying Glass the right to remain in the country during two separate hearings earlier this year - a Humanitarian and Compassionate Review hearing, and a pre-removal risk assessment. Both hearings are routinely held for people with failed refugee claims.

"He is permitted to remain in Canada until the Federal Court makes a decision on both cases for judicial review," Manning said.

The former National Guardsman served as an American military intelligence officer in Iraq for eight months before deserting the army on a temporary leave of absence.

Just one of about 200 known American war resisters currently residing in Canada, Glass has lived in Toronto's Parkdale neighbourhood since coming to the country in August, 2006.


Ottawa Mens Centre.com, from Ottawa, Canada wrote: CANADIAN Judges HATE CANADIAN MEN so much that they flagrantly abuse their power to issue draconian orders virtually deportation orders against Canadian Citizens, simply because they are male and because they dared to make public the details of their well known War on Men.

How? Canadian Judges treat men as human garbage without legal rights. Any legal rights even rights to reside in Canada are removed by draconian orders such as "restraining orders" that effectively deport Canadian Fathers from Canada.

They issue orders for child support not based on any income of any sort, but as "punishment" for allegedly making comments about the judiciary. They follow it up with orders for security for costs that prevent ANY order from ANY VARIATION in the future, that is they know the income never existed, and that the father will not be able to pay the order and that he will be indefinitely repeatedly incarcerated FOR LIFE unless he "leaves Canada".

These orders are a "get out of Canada order" and it means your rights as a Citizen of Canada mean nothing if you ever happen to have the misfortune to be a male in Ontario Family Court in front of Male hating judges like the Dishonourable Allan Sheffield or the Dishonourable Dennis Power. These are two well known examples of DEAT BEAT JUDGES engaged in their WAR AGAINST MEN. www.OttawaMensCentre.com

The fact is, the hatred towards men literally oozes out of the court room walls. Its means Canada does not have the Rule of Law and if you want to destroy society what better way is there to do it than treat half the population as human trash without legal rights.

Of course Canadian Judges pay "lip service" or "put on a veneer', or "wear judicial robes" while acting as female gender extremists.
