It is our sandbox.....but if he is let in, if you don't like him, protest in a peaceful, legitimate way that does NOT interfere with his right to speak....he has not been convicted of anything.

But the left can't deal with controversy...

When he gets Canadian landed immigrant status, then he has the "right" to speak.

However, he has not been so charged and is therefore a free man. As such, he does have a right to protection from the mobs. This makes Canadians look like we live a vigilanty mob mentality.

Oh ballz to that, he doesn't care about other people's rights... eye for an eye, I say.... aye aye Cap'n.

If he doesn't feel safe to come here, good... everybody know's Canada's a friendly, caring, country who will welcome just about everybody and anything..... except Dick.

Do they? Seems to me, Canada is picking up a not so good rep as a hot bed of left leaning aggressive protest, meant only to shut people out and down.

"Canada" didn't make a decision on whether to allow him in. A small group of really loud people did that.

Now I have no particular interest, need or desire to hear what this 'Dick' has to say but I do take issue with silencing anyone. That's wrong no matter how you slice it.

I can just imagine the "Outrage" if a group of really loud people would force that pompous a-ss Al Bore, away from a speaking engagement in Canada.......

Persona non grata is when a government keeps a person out of the country....What happened with Cheney in B.C. was a "Lynch Mob"

Persona non grata means " an unwelcome person".

Why was he an unwelcome person in BC (Canada)?

Let's be honest here - who in their right mind would defend Dick Cheney? lol

How about the administrators of your pension plan, that most probably has shares in Haliburton in the portfolio?

Ever notice that the leftards have a real problem with democracy unless it applies to one of their many incessant demands?

The former included (as far as I can see) people shouting slogans and carrying signs........as is their right, and totally in accordance with custom and the ethics of peaceful protest.

If you find anything different, I'd love to hear about it!

Contrast that with the attacks and threats of violence from the left.

Then tell me again about the "conversation" we should be having.


Oh, so the entire "left" have threatened violence against cheney eh? A few morons have threatened violence, and those that did should be prosecuted. The vast majority have only "called" for cheneys arrest. But then, you are very good at painting things with a very wide brush when it comes to opponents of the conservatives or Israel.

Cheney is a war criminal and should not be allowed into Canada, Galoway has given material support to terrorists and should not be allowed in Canada, Coulter is just a waste of skin and as such should not be allowed in Canada as it costs us money to process the douche.

"How many speakers on the hard left have faced conservative mobs?....."

Because the right, despite its faults, typically can deal with open debate.

The left simply will not.

Nonsense, Colpy, your memory is short. But, perhaps you are not thinking about all of North America?

Maybe Dick would feel more comfortable if we reminded him the climate here is warm enough for pools?

Who gives a ****? This left/right bull**** that goes on around here is just plain ****ing retarded.

Does this really have anything to do with left/right or is it because Cheney is simply disliked for being an ******* on numerous levels?

Dick Cheney said what the intelegent community told him that the weapons of mass destruction were there, it is the intelegent community that got it wrong because of Saddam Hussein’s rant of what he thought he had.

George bush Jr. jumped the gun and decided to go in without the support of the UN

What I find rather telling here is that those who are belittling those who think Cheney should be kept out as leftards are the same ones who are relentlessly telling others they are stupid on another thread because they don't like their opinions. The dichotomy is rather glaring. It kinda makes me sick.

He might have meant "the intelligence" as in classified info. NOT the warmongering Cheney/bush duo.

we should keep that info to ourselves. Let them think we still live in igloos and tents while travelling by canoe. Love your graphic though. Almost gross /fat enough to portray cheney ..

You don't really believe that , do you??? Why is it so important to keep splitting things into left and right. Face it Cheney is an all purpose war loving jack ***. ( and believe me , I am being kind)

Someone in the US started an unprovoked war of aggression, resulting in the deaths of hundredss of thousands of innocent civilians including women and children. The people responsible should be held responsible for their war crimes. Cheney is innocent until proven guilty, but I believe enough evidence exists to arrest Cheney. But until that happens, Cheney should be free to enter Canada. However, the Canadian government not only has a right to arrest war criminals, we have an obligation to do so.

What you believe is immaterial.

Evidence may exist but have the appropriate authorities designated him or Bush for that matter war criminals? For rule of law to prevail isn't it necessary to have warrant existant before you ASSUME he's a war criminal and arrest him?

Only asking because all of the bellicose protestations about a presumption of ASSUMED guilt by a morally outraged bunch of armchair critics amount to zip is it's just an opinion. Till the warrant is issued perhaps we'd be better served by maintaining our principles intact and actually follow the rule of law?

Fair enough. As long as the same law applies to people like OBL , Gadhaffi and others that were dealt another kind of "justice". Either the law applies to EVERYONE.........or we have unfair practices as the law is bent and manipulated to suit the accuser.

there are No exceptions......even though some would like that to be so just on their say so.Remember the USG has set a precident now. So things are not all black and white or even "legal"

targetted assassinations are not only for the US to use as "justice". Iraq leadership would be in their right to send an assassination squad after Cheney and Bush. as no matter how they tried to make it sound legal .....that invasion was not.

Just saying. IF we are going to preach the higher ground.........we had better live it and be an example of it to others.

Uh, yeah, except we're talking Canada here aren't we. Lest I'm seriously confused I've no recollection of us sending a hit squad anywhere and my post was about maintaining OUR moral integrity and wait for the warrant before arresting anyone. I don't give a rat's patoot about another countries behaviour unless, of course, they send a hit squad here.

Why would you deem it appropriate that your outrage at another countries behaviour justify Canada foregoing the rule of law?

By "we" I was referring to the west ......but I stand corrected in generalizing Canada with US policies. My bad.

and yes, I am outraged at US policies , Cheney's and Bush's behaviors that have brought us this past volatile decade. Not that I can do anything about it...
