Canada denies Randy Quaid's request to stay

2013-01-28 10:55
 
Toronto - Canadian immigration officials have denied US actor Randy Quaid's request for permanent resident status in Canada.

A Canadian government official confirmed late on Saturday his request for permanent status has been denied. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak publicly. Quaid can appeal the decision to the federal court.

US officials last year refused to seek extradition of the actor and his wife from Canada to face felony vandalism charges in Santa Barbara, California, but authorities in the coastal town say they'll still have the couple arrested if they return to the states.

Quaid has sought to stay in Canada, claiming he was being hunted by "Hollywood star-whackers" who had killed his friends David Carradine and Heath Ledger.

Quaid's trouble began in 2010 when he and his wife were arrested for causing more than $5 000 damage at a hillside home they were renting.
