Federal Court judge: stephen harper and his klan are morons for smearing George Galloway

However, there is not much he can do about it. Because after the harper government labeled Galloway a terrorist sympathizer {a.k.a anyone who has a different perspective} and warned that he would be refused entry into Canada, George did not make a physical attempt to enter. One would think it was a wise decision on his behalf, but that is where he went wrong, apparently.

In his ruling released on Monday, Justice Richard Mosley writes that since Galloway never actually tried to enter Canada after being warned the government would not let him in, there isn't much he can do.

However, Mosley, a former Crown prosecutor, found the decision to prevent Galloway from coming to Canada "a flawed and overreaching interpretation of the standards under Canadian law for labelling someone as engaging in terrorism or being a member of a terrorist organization."
Yes, welcome to stephen harper's Canada, Mr.Mosley.
Mosley also concludes it is clear that the Canada Border Services Agency's preliminary assessment was hurriedly produced in two hours and on scant evidence after receiving instructions from Velshi.

He writes the CBSA assessment is unreasonable because it "overreaches in its interpretation of the facts, errs in its application of the law and fundamentally fails to take into account the purposes for which Galloway provided aid to the people of Gaza through the Hamas government." The judge also notes that for the formal assessment, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service advised border officials that it had no concerns with Galloway's visit.

Yet Velshi told reporters that the decision to bar Galloway was made on national security grounds. Mosley writes "one might hope that a ministerial aide would exercise greater restraint in purporting to speak on behalf of the government, his comments to the press amount to little more than posturing."
Where I disagree with the good judge, is his opinion that Velshi acted on his own.
