    I think it's a fair bit of hypocricy on Canada's part, copnsidering the forum they're hosting and that they let others in with far more violent records. That said, it's up to Canada and Canadians if this is right for them.

    My thoughts? It doesn't matter either way. He's an American with rights to free speech, so we tend to tolerate people like that, whether we like it or not. As for him being barred from entry to your country- that is your country's business, and not ours.

    America only tolerates free speech from its own citizens everyone else would have a hard time gaining entry to the US, just like Canada.

    Not if the originator of the thread was interested in hearing the opinions of Americans.
