B.C. court supports extradition of U.S. environmentalist wanted in Oregon
VANCOUVER (CP) - An environmentalist who is on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list should be extradited to the United States to face arson charges, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled Thursday.
Arrow is a well-known environmentalist from Oregon who fled to Canada after he was charged with conspiring to commit arson against two logging companies in the Portland area and causing $250,000 in damage.
The double standard:
A man who says that "the trees told him to" change his name uses explosive devices in the commission of multiple crimes and he is labeled an "environmentalist."
A Muslim who kills civilians is an "insurgent" or "guerilla" whose religion will not be mentioned.
A man who bombs abortion clinics is a "terrorist" who will be referred to as a Christian.
