    From what I understand, anyone with a record is flatout denied entry. I had a guy working for me that had a little sump'm-sump'm on his record and he wasn't able to haul a load of pipe to Alaska.

    Actually, Canada prosecutes for much, much less than that. Ask Ezra Levant or Mark Steyn.

    I've always heard it was felonies, pending cases/warrants, or misdemeanors involving violence but IDK. I know that Martha Stewart reportedly ran into it one time post prison and there was some process that could take months in which she could be allowed to come in but she would have to go through the process every single time she goes if I recall correctly.

    That's the line, today. Tomorrow, you can't say nigger, honkie, spick, kike, dego, greaser, bohump, etc.

    The next day, you can't cuss.

    The day after that, you can't yell above a certain decibel level.

    Then, it will be illegal look cross-eyed at someone.

    The point being, if there is a line, then it can always be re-drawn.

    No, they were "hate speech." The Human Rights Commission doesn't handle libel/defamation. The libel suits against Levant came after he beat the charges in the HRC.

    Steyn was prosecuted by the HRC merely for quoting an Imam accurately.

    Said Dean Steacy of the HRC: "Freedom of speech is an American concept, so I don't give it any value . . . it's not my job to give value to an American concept."

    (All this said, Canada can perfectly well deny entry to anyone it wants.)

    That is the line drawn by provincial laws on the views of their constituents. We are not like paranoid Americans that think the government is always out to get them.

    Yeah, sorry about that it's 1am and that's what I have been reading about recently.
