    If a mullah or Islamist was stupid enough to stand up in Canada and preach hatred and incite violence against Canadians, his fellow muslims who love this country and its society would probably take care of him before any charges were laid. there's only been a few terror plots in Canada and those cases authorities were first alerted by fellow muslims.

    And if they didn't take care of him, the law would, without fear of reprisals. Guess it must be something in the air up here in the great white north.

    It's not free speech when they charge money for tickets.

    That is their job though. You guys barred Trudeau who would later become prime minster back when you were into the whole anti-communism thing and that was for political statements aswell.

    if you are not american, you should see how US border guards utilize their extreme powers. abuse is bound to happen in any system where such power is delegated down the chain to the front line.

    The US did a lot of messed up things back then, I certainly won't deny that.

    US border guards definitely don't have the power to deem someone "crazy" based off of whatever statements they have made in the past and deny them entry to the country.

    I do have trouble with the double standards, myself, because once Canada identifies one, specific belief system as inviolate, then to be consistant, they should establish all belief systems in the same way.

    I see burning The Q'ran as provocative, but there is an enormous difference between a symbolic act aimed at a religio-political doctrine and actually trying to stir up violence against a people. Considering the fact that religious belief is a matter of free choice in Canada just as it is with any other ideology, then it should follow that provocative acts of symbolic protest against this ideology should also be a free choice.

    The day that Canada refuses entry to Muslims who express similar attitudes towards Jews or Christians is the day I will believe them to be upholding a principle. Until then, they are just acting politically correct and very much hypocritical.

    A lot of the radical Muslims in other countries are insane. If this pastor guy KNOWS blood is going to be spilt by what he's doing, then he needs to take some of the responsibility for it.
    No, the Muslims are totally responsible for it. And those who don't mow the mobs down contribute to it. Terry Jones is guilty only of telling it like it is.
