  • Chelsea Manning says she was denied entry into Canada

    Oh Canada,

    way to go! Someone finally grew a pair!


    Chelsea Manning, the former US soldier jailed for leaking classified information, says she has been denied entry into Canada.
    Manning has tweeted a letter from the federal government that appears to show that she has been deemed inadmissible for entry.
    The letter suggests Manning is not allowed in based on her conviction in the US on charges of espionage.
    She was freed from prison in May after serving seven years of her sentence.
    Former US president Barack Obama commuted her 35-year sentence before he left office earlier this year but did not pardon her.
    Under Canada's Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, a foreign national can be inadmissible on a number of grounds related to "criminality" and "serious criminality".
    The government letter cites the fact of her having been convicted of an offence in the US that would result in a prison term that carries a maximum sentence of at least 10 years in Canada.
    It notes that the American charges under the espionage act would, if committed in Canada, "equate an indictable offence, namely treason" under the criminal code.
    Manning apparently tried to cross into Canada at a New York-Quebec border crossing on Friday.
    She said on Twitter that she would be challenging the denial of entry at an admissibility hearing.
    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked about the incident on Monday and said he had no comment.
    The transgender soldier, born Bradley Manning, leaked diplomatic cables and other documents to Wikileaks in 2010, one of the largest breaches of classified material in US history.

    He Chelsea Manning, lost his by dangling them in a bowl of Weedol

    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

                  Canada stops more than Felons, if you have a US Conviction for any one of numerous crimes you'll have trouble if you just show up at the Border. One that gets many in trouble is a simple DUI. If you do not apply in advance for and exception the odds are very high that you'll be denied entry.

                  “To talk of many things:
                  Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
                  Of cabbages—and kings—
                  And why the sea is boiling hot—
                  And whether pigs have wings.”

                      I think that the former male person now identifying as Chelsea Manning will find that he/she is going to be singled out for circumspection no matter where he/she chooses to travel.

                          ...and Canada doesn't need the headaches. Very smart, if you ask me!

                            Why is this even news? Who cares?
                            My worst jump story:
                            My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                            As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                            No lie.

                              Of course it was. Military service is a ploy for those transgenders who desperately desire sex re-assignment surgery but who don't have the money to pay for it. With all the uber PC that the military services have to espouse, it wouldn't do to deny these 'poor abused minorities' the all-inclusiveness of the US military and the largesse of its medical corps.
