On Feb 13th I reported that GW Bush was coming to Canada. Well maybe yes and maybe no, a post this morning at AfterDowningStreet.Org quotes a Canadian group
www.lawyersagainstthewar.org LAW has advised the Prime Minister of Canada, the Attorney General and the Ministers of Immigration, Public Safety and Foreign Affairs that George W. Bush is inadmissible to Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. Section 35(1) (a) states that a foreign national is inadmissible on grounds of violating human or international rights or for committing an act outside Canada that constitutes an offence referred to in sections 4 to 7 of the Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes Act. Also inadmissible (s.35 (1)(b)) are persons who are, or were, senior officials “in the service of a government that, in the opinion of the Minister, engages or has engaged in gross human rights violations.
I don’t know where this will go but it does point out that George is on shaky ground as far as traveling outside his own country. This is Canada and as was shown last Thursday we have a huge respect for all that is decent in the USA President Obama was warmly endorsed by all Canadians. George to me does not represent decency. It makes me very proud that others confirm my position on this mans entrance into this country. We do have high ethical standards and demand more of elected officials and those in power.
If there are reasonable grounds to believe a person has been complicit in any of these crimes, listed above entry to Canada must be denied. The Supreme Court of Canada says reasonable grounds are “something more than suspicion but less than…proof on the balance of probabilities.”
How are you betting will he come or cancel?
