An accused child predator has lost his latest bid to stay in Canada.
The BC Court of Appeal has upheld a ruling ordering the extradition of Edward Hilts to the United States where the American citizen is wanted for trying to lure a 14-year old girl online.
The 66-year old failed to prove procedural mistakes were made by federal Justice Minister Rob Nicholson when he approved his removal from Canada.
Hilts was first arrested in October of 2009 after sexually explicit messages were sent to an undercover agent posing as a teenager in Pittsburgh.
In May of 2011, police found him living in Vancouver with a 16-year old girl they say he'd met online.
