Former President Bush Barred from Canada

Apparently, President Bush is off on his first public speaking engagement and the good folks up in Canada have issues with the former President. According to the law in the great white north, if you are suspected of torture in any form then the government has to investigate it and prosecute the guilty parties to the fullest extent of the law. Gail Davidson is heading up the group Lawyers Against the War and is pressing her government to ban if not barr former President Bush from entering the country. Prime Minister Steven Harper is not commenting on the subject or very evasive to discuss it.

My first thoughts were that former President Bush still has diplomatic immunity but that little priveledge goes bye-bye according to the group of lawyers in Canada when it comes to suspicion of torture. Over at MSNBC and Keith Olbermann they have this interview and discussion on the topic...

I'm wondering if the Royal Canadian Mounties will finally get their man? We shall see. I have to call my buddy Rush Limbaugh to see if we should start raising bail money for the former President.

Papa!!! Your title knocked me out of my chair until I read the post and found out it was not quite true, LOL. Top o' the morning to you, my Irish buddy! BJ (whose maternal forebears came from Dublin.)

I love that post PapaM - it made my morning. Now if only other countries would follow suit, and some states, so we can isolate Bush to Texas. He never liked traval anyway. Let's force him to remain there until the world - and less well read Americans - finally decide to prosecute. Happy St. Patrick's Day - Michael

@Micheal - I totally agree with you, he needs to stay in Texas chasing cows on his ranch or whatever he does there. We don't want a criminal like him in Canada. He's done horrible things and by wanting to address his first post presidential speech in Canada, I personally don't feel very honored. Bye bye Mr. Bush!
