A nation of hosers? Not so much. The Canadian government is refusing entry to British MP George Galloway who, in addition to being a Saddam-loving anti-war activist, is also a financial supporter of Hamas, "a banned terrorist organization in Canada," and as such a national security threat to the country. The immigration ministry notified Galloway in advance of a scheduled visit to Toronto so he could "avoid the expense and embarrassment of being turned away from the Canadian border." Too bad. That would have been fun to watch, eh?
