Here's an Idea
Instead of running around the country, making stops at every media outlet along the way to mislead Canadians about the Liberals, how about this? How about instructing those with direct oversight over the CBSA to put together a summer training session.
No, not more training on carrying a firearm that you can't use. You know, useful training, like who can and cannot enter this country and why.
The federal government had to apologize to a visiting Salvadoran judge for some out-of-date information about his country.
Eugenio Chicas was detained at Toronto's Pearson airport for 24 hours last week after he says officials told him he was a member of a questionable organization.
The FMLN was the revolutionary guerrilla group that fought the government in a brutal civil war between 1980 and 1992. Chicas was once a senior commander in the former military movement, and is a high profile member of the party.
But the FMLN now is the governing party in El Salvador. Canadian minister of state Peter Kent attended the presidential inauguration this spring alongside U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"They told me that because of my affiliation with the organization, they wouldn't let me into the country," Chicas said from San Salvador.
"I told them that the war in El Salvador ended 17 years ago and the FMLN is now the governing party in El Salvador, but they told me that was the information they had available."
Sigh. You know, it seems not a day goes by without some embarrassing incident with this government.
Wasn't keeping Ayers and Galloway out idiotic enough? This man was invited by OUR government!
All I can say is, I sincerely hope that when Abdelrazik lands, there are no problems.
