I posted yesterday about Dr. Srdja Trifkovic’s planned speech at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. A Bosniak pressure group had written a letter to President Stephen Toope of UBC protesting Dr. Trifkovic’s appearance, but as of yesterday he was still scheduled to speak.
If President Toope was hesitant about suppressing free speech at UBC, the Canadian government was more forthright: it denied Dr. Trifkovic entry at the border. Our Serbian correspondent Gray Falcon quoted the following explanation from the Canadian government:
Inadmissible on grounds of violating human or international rights for being a prescribed senior official in the service of a government that, in the opinion of the minister, engages or has engaged in terrorism, systematic or gross human rights violations, or genocide, a war crime or a crime against humanity within the meaning of subsections 6 (3) to (5) of the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act.
Remember: this is Canada we’re talking about, a country that admits (and often celebrates) representatives of Islamic theocracies, terrorist front groups, and Hamas-lovers like George Galloway. Not to mention being a long-time fan of Fidel Castro.
Srdja Trifkovic, in contrast, represents no state and no political organization. He speaks for no one but himself. His only offense is to question the dominant narrative about what happened in Bosnia in the 1990s.
Welcome to Modern Multicultural Canada.
Many thanks to Kitman for alerting us to this news video from Canadian television about what happened yesterday:
