Two U.S. Army deserters who lost a Federal Court of Appeal hearing in their bid to stay in Canada haven’t lost hope and will seek leave to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, their lawyer says.
“This is not a setback that will dissuade us,” solicitor Jeffry House said of last week’s appeal court ruling.
Still, his clients Jeremy Hinzman and Brandon Hughey “are very disappointed,” the court didn’t conclude they should have refugee status.
