    Edit: He was travelling to Cnada to debate several people about free speech including: Imam Steve Rockwell the director of Sheikh Deidat Mosque, Dr Masud Ansari a prominent Islamic author, Dr Bikram Lamba Canada’s most prominent Sikh leader and author, Ron Banerjee Director of Canadian Hindu Advocacy.

    We haven't really needed to so far.

    You'd want it for lets see.... tons of natural resources trailing only Russia in that regard. 1/4 of the worlds fresh water. Tim Horton's coffee, the best hockey players, beavertails, and monster mosquito zappers, oh and of course way better beer.
    Sure. I say we let Canada be Canada.

    That's if you want to play nice and then feel morally superior about yourself as you are, as a consequence, marched away to your beheading. But a proper response of people wanting to preserve their freedom is "Bring Them On!" Not only will the rioters expose to the world the true nature of what the Koran inspires, they will give us clear targets for our embassy Marines to mow down. But I guess the Red White and Blue has now become yellow, and the Marines, under pacifists' orders, have stopped wearing dress blues and are now wearing blue dresses to swish at the rabid Arab rabble.

    The smell of fear blowing in from the Great White North as Qanadians piss in their pants in anticipation of how Nazislamis will react is an invasion of pollution that can only spread and choke America's right to breathe the air of freedom. There was never a land of the free that wasn't also a home of the brave. Yellow leaks off the Maple Leaf.

    Really, the napalm girl would like to argue otherwise. She calls us the true land of the free not the U.S..

But when you portray yourself as some kind of radical thinker, then you can hardly be surprised when a nation doesn't want you around. It's something to consider before spewing hate out in public.

    Things could have been worse for the preacher. He could have been accepted into Canada and then held in containment to be tried for "crimes against humanity." He could've called the American consulate for help who might reply with, "Yeah, we'll get right on that. Excuse me, I need to go for walkies with the poodle." He should be thankful Canada was direct about things and told him to piss off up front.
    I agree here. I don't think Winehouse was barred entry here, could be wrong on that. I agree in full though that countries can bar entry as they please, hopefully according to the laws of their lands and in this case there isn't a problem with it that I can see.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
