LOL: Code Pink hags denied entry to Canada.

Gnarly.


So-called peace activists who bare their saggy breasts to stop bombs from fallin'; who make weird eardrum-busting animal noises when being forced out from meetings; who allegedly gave $600,000 to Fallujah insurgents when Marines were fighting them back in 2004...


Peace activists to retest border policy
By KAREN MATTHEWS, Associated Press Writer

The activists and their supporters presented petitions Tuesday at Canadian consulates in several U.S. cities, demanding that Canada reverse what they say is a policy that keeps foes of the Iraq war from visiting.

"The Bush administration has convinced the Canadian government to do its dirty work, to deny entry to people who are dissenting against Bush administration policies," said Ann Wright, a retired Army colonel and diplomat who was turned back at the border along with Medea Benjamin of the anti-war group Code Pink.

The women walked into Canada at Niagara Falls on Oct. 3 to test whether they really would be denied entry and were turned back.

Wright, who has traveled to Canada twice in recent years without incident, said the policy appears to be new.

But Derek Mellon, a spokesman with the Canada Border Services Agency, said the requirements have not changed.

"Admissibility of travelers seeking to enter Canada is considered on a case-by-case basis on the specific facts presented by the applicant in each case," he said. "Several factors are used in determining admissibility into Canada, including involvement in criminal activity, in human rights violations, in organized crime, security, health or financial reasons."
