War criminals welcome in Canada this week

Old war criminals don't go on trial - they go on lecture tours.

General Colin Powell : Leadership in the 21st Century
Vancouver Convention Centre, June 12 @1:30pm

"Powell illustrates for audiences precisely what it takes to be a leader, providing strategies for "taking charge" during times of great change and great crises. Gen. Powell demonstrates how to remain focused, take responsibility and work towards improving processes, organizations and people."

Protest : June 12 @ 1pm

Henry Kissinger : Mastering Change/The Great Transition
The International Economic Forum of the Americas in Montreal
Hilton Bonaventure Hotel, June 9-12

Protest : Jun 11 @ noon

Kissinger is wanted for questioning by judges in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, France and Spain but apparently he is welcome here at $185 a plate, despite the fact Section 35 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act states that a foreign national is inadmissible to Canada if this person has committed an act outside of Canada that is referred to in Sections four to seven of the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act, including being a senior official in the service of a government that has engaged in terrorism, systematic or gross human rights violations, a war crime or a crime against humanity.

Wow - for once, "extraordinary rendition" seems like a good and moral thing.

Let't just send Kissinger home indirectly, via Paris. He loves Paris - all those great memories of sabotaging Viet Nam peace talks to support Nixon's presidential campaign... good times, good times.
