Find it strange they ban members of the Westboro church, it's not like they're dangerous they just protest.

Well there ya go; they were advised not to enter Canada; some did though.

is the Westboro Baptist Church not banned from entering Canada? i

Church members enter Canada, aiming to picket bus victim's funeral - Manitoba - CBC News

Westboro Baptist Church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Canada has specifically banned members of the Westboro Baptist Church from entering the country! - OMG Facts

The essential difference is that designation of "dangerous" either to themselves or others.

I believe, if there is a reason to suspect their behaviour might pose a danger to EITHER there is justifiable reason to "exclude" them from entry.

Just as the U.S. and all nations could decide to exclude anyone or any individual it merely "thought" might be inadmissible because the questioning Border Agent "thought" a single answer to a single question might have been unacceptable.

Happens thousands of times a day every day, everywhere.


Now let's talk about the U.S's "NO FLY" list and who might be on that?

makes sense, i hear the types of protest they do here could get them some trouble in other places.

Juries still out on whether or not they were refused entry outright, based on their stated beliefs as expressed at previus protests, or asked if they intended to protest with their usual signage and shirts and then refused?????

Canadians are less worried about getting sued by their neighbor if they look at them wrong.

Canadians are far less obsessed with guns, and are less likely to think they need to be armed to greet their neighbor.

A lot of what they have in place would never work in the US.

Do you consider Canada less "free"?
Yes.

C'mon Robin you can do better than a one word response. In all things anti-Canadian you're usually the most verbose on here.
I have nothing against Canada. In many ways I admire the good thing about it. It just isn't much of a player on the world scene.

We are the world's policemen, and have since WWI and WWII, because if we don't do it, somebody you won't like at all, like a Putin, WILL do it, and it won't be pleasant.

The best thing to come from Canada, IMHO, is Red Green and the Possum Lodge. That is some seriously-funny stuff - eh!!!!!

I may tweak Canadians a little in a light-hearted way, but I am glad they are there keeping the mosquitos well-fed!!!!
