Galloway - 1. Harper and Kenney - 0.

George Galloway was in Calgary yesterday. His speech was sold out to a seven hundred and fifty seat house.

Before the event, he decided to visit Jason Kenney's constituency office. Kenney was in Ottawa.

Kenney, as Immigration Minister, tried to keep Galloway out of Canada under the pretense that he was a terrorist and terrorism supporter, a claim that was refuted by a judge in a sixty page decision.

Galloway wants to sue (I hope he wins big) with any money going to the Canadian antiwar movement.

From the website and YouTube:


  1. Good luck to Galloway in his fight against the US toadies in Canada and elsewhere. I have met him twice and he was ok. He could have been a major party leader here in the uk if he hadn't stuck to his principles.

  2. Galloway seems to be doing pretty well here in Canada. He's speaking to sold-out houses across the country. I would dearly love to see a Galloway/Kenney debate. Someone said that "people would be picking little Kenney shreds out of the carpet for years to come" if such a thing ever happened.

  3. Sold out? In CALGARY!? Did they import an audience especially for this occasion?

  4. Well, Calgary DID elect a young Muslim mayor not long ago.

    While Toronto elected Ford - who is neither.

  5. Toronto used to be the most chilled environment in the world in the 1980s. What has happened to Canada? A fall from innocence and an expulsion from the Garden of Eden has happened down the way IMO. Last year I even felt a different atmosphere about the place. The girls at the Zanzibar were still looking pretty good though.

  6. Have you seen this?

  7. I haven't seen the documentary but I follow Scott Taylor's articles on his website, Esprit de Corps. I'll have to see if I can find a online source for it.

    I don't know how we'll ever be able to stop this thing. Both the major parties, the Conservatives and the Liberals, seem to back it for no reason I can fathom.
