Goodman treated like Mooseshit at Vancouver Border



Apparently you're Osama Bin Laden if you oppose the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Amy Goodman, who says she didn't even know the Olympics were being staged there, experienced invasive treatment at the hands of border guards as she tried to enter the country to give a talk that had nothing to do with the Olympics.

Canadians: buy a clue: no one in USia gives a flying puck about yr fricking Olympics. But one has to wonder about your ideas of border proprieties, privacy, matters of public interest, and what conceivable justification you might offer for how you're handling your paranoia.

The Globe and Mail carried the story as well. Not oddly, however, this tale of the maltreatment of a journalist at the US/Canadian border is of no interest to the New York Times, which has never acknowledged Goodman's existence -- a calculated inattention worse than the New Canadian Attention.

Hey, at least the Globe & Mail noticed ... and yeah, it was pretty asinine thing to do.

I'd like to believe it was somewhat of an anomaly, but that's being way too idealistic. We do a fair number of stupid and undemocratic things up here.

Stephen Harper is reknowned for a mania about control, and Gordon Campbell, his provincial counterpart in BC, is not a lot different.
