Eighteen months ago, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney blocked then-British MP George Galloway from Canada, labeling him a terror supporter and a national security risk. At the time, Galloway was scheduled to appear in four Canadian cities on a speaking tour called "Resisting War: from Gaza to Afghanistan."
Galloway and his supporters protested, saying the move was a crass political attempt to silence criticism of Canadian foreign policy on Afghanistan and Palestine. Weeks before the ban, Galloway had led a humanitarian aid convoy to Gaza as part of an international campaign to break Israel's illegal blockade.
Galloway and his supporters were vindicated Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley issued his 60-page decision on the matter. (Read more here:http://www.rabble.ca/news/2010/09/what-galloway-court-decision-means-free-speech-canada).
