Canada refuses noted terrorist/friend of future President

This cracked me up.

An American education professor, one of the founders of a radical 1960s group known as the Weather Underground, which was responsible for a number of bombings in the United States in the early 1970s, was turned back at the Canadian border last night.

Dr. William Ayers, a professor of education at the University of Illinois-Chicago and a leader in educational reform, was scheduled to speak at the Centre for Urban Schooling at University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. But that appearance has now been temporarily cancelled.

"I don't know why I was turned back," Ayers said in an interview this morning from Chicago. "I got off the plane like everyone else and I was asked to come over to the other side. The border guards reviewed some stuff and said I wasn't going to be allowed into Canada. To me it seems quite bureaucratic and not at all interesting ... If it were me I would have let me in. I couldn't possibly be a threat to Canada."

What I want to know is what is he doing sneaking off to Canuckistan when the coronation is tomorrow!?

guess I need to quit teasing the Canadians.. clearly they have a better sense of decency and right and wrong than many Americans do today..
Hmm, maybe I'm thinking about this all wrong. Maybe we should be trying to get the creep OUT of the country. Let the Canadians pay for his socialized medicine when karma finally catches up with the bastard.
... If it were me I would have let me in.

How prolific.

I couldn't possibly be a threat to Canada.

I'm sure he said the same thing in the 70's.
Yay for the Canadians! Who'd have thought they would grow a pair at this late date?

The most amusing part of the article: Ayers acting clueless as to why a foreign country wouldn't want him fouling their soil.
