Randy Quaid to stay in Canada

At a press conference Wednesday actor Randy Quaid said that he will be allowed to stay in Canada indefinitely.

“When Evi and I came to Canada last October we could never have envisioned how things would unfold and how our lives would change,” Randy said at the press conference, according to the CBC. “Today we’re here to say thank you Canada. Thank you for your warm welcome. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to live in peace.”

Quaid’s wife Evi was granted Canadian citizenship on Feb. 10.  Evi’s father was born in the country according to the CBC and The Hollywood Reporter reports that his wife Evi now has Canadian citizenship and she will sponsor the actor.

Quaid failed to appear at a hearing in Santa Barbara, Calif. on felony burglary and misdemeanor charges that he and his wife Evi allegedly squatted in the guest house of a home they used to own.

The Quaids claim they were seeking asylum in Canada to escape from people they described as “Hollywood star whackers” who allegedly killed Heath Ledger, David Carradine and Chris Penn in the United States.
