Another Canadian Faces Extradition to the United States

First it was marijuana, now it's gambling: Another Canadian man faces extradition to the United States for violating prohibition-era laws from outside the American border.

Douglas Rennick
, a 34 year old Vancouver man who profited by aiding offshore Internet companies to pay U.S. gamblers, faces two years in a U.S. prison if extradited.

Like Marc Emery, Rennick's original list of charges was reduced to only one after agreeing to a guilty plea with U.S. prosecutors.

Canada has extradition treaties with 50 countries.
