    I don’t know about that, but you can ask Mr. Trump is known for dodging drafts and is an expert on it. In the ‘70s, he dodged Vietnam by having his podiatrist claim his foot was bad. As for the other four drafts, he argued he wanted to stay in college to avoid being drafted and it worked.

    Canada was at war with Germany 10th September 1939 for over two years before the US, and declared war with Japan before the US in response to Japan's attack in the Pacific.

    WW2 draft dodgers would not have been welcome in Canada while Canadians were fighting in Europe after the US had sat on their hands for so long.  Many Americans however crossed into Canada to join Canadians fighting over seas.

    Canada was not at war with Vietnam but played an active diplomatic role. Many Canadians did not agree with that war and the government listened.

    It was probably a good idea for weak cowards to stay home anyway.
