It's our duty

In the Hinzman war dodger court case, the Crown attorney argued:
"It is not really for us to pass judgment on a military code in a foreign country"
What? But of course it is. If Canada doesn't do this, who will?
It is the duty of Canadians to make exactly this judgment before we send anyone back to a country where, it was claimed, he will be treated more harshly by the military because it was the Iraq War he spoke out against.
I'm glad that the judge did not agree with the Crown attorney. Hinzman and his family are staying, at least for now.
