National War Memorial

The National War Memorial in Ottawa, Canada is also known as The Response. It was originally designed and constructed in memory of Canadians who served in the First World War.  It has since been adapted to honor those serving in subsequent conflicts.  The surmounting sculptures symbolize spirits of peace and liberty. Earlier today, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, standing guard at the memorial was shot and killed.  The attacker was killed when he continued by shooting his way into the nearby Parliament building.

In the time before PASSPORTS were needed to travel the world [before WWI] the Canadian/US border was completely open and unguarded. The at the start of WWI one country, CANADA, tried to seal it to prevent Canadian draft dodgers from fleeing to the US. Some estimate as many as 500K US citizens fled to Canada to avoid the draft in the US between 1962 and the end of the draft. President James Earl Carter pardoned draft evaders for this period during his Presidency.

Question: Did ending the draft allow the DEEP STATE to expand?
