Obama's Friend Bill Ayers Again Denied Access To Canada

National Post

Former American radical Bill Ayers has once again been barred from entering Canada

Mr. Ayers was scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the Worldview Conference on Media and Higher Education this Thursday in Toronto. Conference organizers say Mr. Ayer’s refused entry should “should raise red flags for citizens concerned with free and open debate.”

“Bill Ayers is a respected academic, and in no way a threat to the peace and security of Canada. There is no reason why he should be kept out,” said Mark Langer, President of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA), who is hosting the event.

Mr. Ayers was barred from entering Canada in 2009 after touching down at Toronto City Centre Airport. At the time, he said he had entered Canada dozens of time before without incident.

Mr. Ayers has hired Canadian and American lawyers in unsuccessful attempts to lobby the Canadian Border Services Agency for passage into the country. Advised by his lawyers that he would likely be held at the border, he did not attempt a crossing this time around.

According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, foreign nationals are barred from entering Canada if they were involved “in criminal activity, in human rights violations or in organized crime.”

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was criticized for once serving on a Chicago charitable board with Ayers. Then-Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin accused Mr. Obama at the time of “palling around” with an “unrepentant domestic terrorist.”

”I don’t regret setting bombs,” said Bill Ayers in a New York Times interview, coincidentally published on September 11, 2001. He added that he would not “discount the possibility” of doing it again.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Obama’s best friend and author of his book is a domestic terrorist.

The Canadians have more sense than we do. Good for them. Too bad we don't do that here. Of course, he is welcomed at the White House!

Are you positive for I thought I saw him throwing fire bombs at Vancouver police cruisers after the Bruins took Lord Stanley back to Boston!

This dirtbag is so well respected, he can't get into Canada but is allowed into the White House. Is there any Americans left in Washington D.C.
