Why did they let Galloway in to Canada???

He funded a terrorist organization, Hamas...and he said it was all about politics, not why was he let in???
In Canada, we allow odious opinions — it’s one of the things that distinguishes our society from Saddam’s prison nation.

But we have a rule against actually helping terrorists. Section 37 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act says helping terrorists anywhere in the world makes you ineligible for entry into Canada. And Galloway personally handed Hamas tens of thousands of dollars, stating it wasn’t for charity.

In March of 2009, Galloway was warned if he tried to enter Canada, he might be kept out. He didn’t try to enter, but sued Canada.

Last week, Galloway’s suit was thrown out, since the government hadn’t actually stopped him.

Galloway flew to Canada over the weekend. And border security waved him through with a smile.

Galloway’s odious political views aren’t illegal. But fundraising for Hamas is.

So why was Galloway, bankroller of Hamas, let in?

It’s a question Stephen Rigby, the dozing head of Canadian Border Services Agency, must be called on by Parliament to answer.

He was probably following Harper's orders.

The answer is always the same: Canada's civil service is chronically infected with leftists and that includes Canada Border Services.

We could justify this purely on the grounds that Britain has imposed arbitrary bans on people; Michael Savage comes to mind. He's not Canadian but the next one might be.

A couple of comments.

1. Pissdoff: Nothing like a stupid add nothin to this discussion.

The law is very clear - people who finance terrorism shall not be allowed to enter Canada. Galloway has financed Hamas which is a terrorist organization.

He should not be allowed to enter the country.
