It’s hard out there for a traitor:
— Chelsea E. Manning (@xychelsea) September 25, 2017
The document said that Manning had committed a crime outside the country that “would equate to an indictable offence, namely treason” in Canada and which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years imprisonment.
Committing a crime elsewhere that would carry a maximum sentence of at least 10 years in Canada is grounds for a person to be denied entry, the document said.
Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, declined to comment “on any specific case” at a news conference, and said he looked “forward to seeing more details about this situation.”
Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale suggested on Monday he would think hard before overruling a border officer’s decision.
This does seem like the kind of thing that Trudeau might cave on, no matter what his public safety minister says. The prime minister has been eerily in sync with American media leftists on almost everything. And the American media has been in love with Manning.
Manning somehow manages to avoid blaming Canada for for some sort of gender-based discrimination. That has been the go-to for the former soldier since being released from prison.
For now, we can take some small comfort in the fact that Canada takes a harsher view of Manning’s antics than half of America does.
