Escape to Canada documents how a political change in Canada has triggered a number of unexpected consequences. In the wake of the country legalizing both the use of marijuana, and gay marriage, many people seeking a safe place to partake of these new liberties. Director Albert Nerenberg interviews various people, including AWOL members of the American military, who traveled to The Great White North to take advantage of these changes in the law.
UPDATE: The current right-wing minority government in Canada led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper has removed many of the liberal laws of the previous Liberal administration. They are very much pro-war, anti-gay marriage and against any use of marijuana. Take for example, the recent extradition of Canadian citizen Marc Emery (featured in this documentary) to United States for selling marijuana seeds online, a practice which is legal in Canada.
