Canada stops Galloway from peeing on carpet

According the New York Times here, the British press are making a big deal of the banning George Galloway. This video is from the British Channel 4 where their reporter called Moores spokesperson Alykhan Velshi, who actually sounds more like one of the PMO operatives, to get further clarification.

The reporter questioned Velshi, about his quoted description of Galloway as an Infandous street-corner Cromwell and tried to get a better understanding of why the British, MP was being refused entry.

Velshi implied that Galloway has expressed sympathy for the Taliban murderers who are trying to kill Canadian and British soldiers in Afghanistan, although he did not mention any particular article or speech.

Velshi believes it is entirely appropriate for Canadian security agencies to say that if they have advanced notice that Mr Galloway is going to come to Canada to pee on our carpet, that we should deny him entry to the home.

Galloway for his part is planning to fight the ban and seems to have a good understanding of our current political situation.

He said his contact with Hamas was to provide aid, while noting that Tony Blair had met Hezbollah leaders earlier this week.

This is a very sad day for the Canada we have known and loved – a bastion of the freedoms that supporters of the occupation of Afghanistan claim to be defending. This has further vindicated the anti-war movements contention that unjust wars abroad will end up consuming the very liberties that make us who we are. He suspected the move was a rather desperate election ploy by a conservative government reaching the end of the line.

All right-thinking Canadians, whether they agree with me over the wisdom of sending troops to Afghanistan or not, will oppose this outrageous decision. For a Scotsman to be barred from Canada is like being told to stay away from the family home. This is not something I'm prepared to accept.

This is the kind of crap I have come to expect from our arrogant government, but it could get to be great fun, if Galloway can get back on this side of the Atlantic.

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.


That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
