Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says he won't use his authority to intervene in a decision to bar controversial British MP George Galloway from entering Canada.
Speaking in Calgary Friday, Kenney said he wouldn't override a Citizenship and Immigration Canada decision to deny Galloway permission to enter the country based on security grounds.
Kenney's office said the 54-year-old Scot has expressed sympathy for the Taliban in Afghanistan and provided financial aid to the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
Galloway called the decision "irrational, inexplicable and an affront to Canada's good name," and said he would fight the ruling with "all means at my disposal."

Galloway is a scum of the earth lunatic.
I wonder how he felt about Britain not allowing Geert Wilders to enter his country?
FEBRUARY 1996 : (UK LABOUR MP GALLOWAY FLIES TO MOROCCO ON BEHALF OF MIRA’S SAAD AL-FAGIH TO MEET CROWN PRINCE OF MOROCCO) In February 1996, UK Labour MP George Galloway flew to Morocco for a secret meeting with the then Crown Prince of Morocco to explore a deal between the Islamic Saudi dissidents [such as British-based Saudi dissident Saad al-Fagih, an Islamic fundamentalist who purchased a satellite phone used by al-Qaeda in Afghanistan] and the Saudi royal family. - “MP may be tried as traitor (Galloway),” by Antony Barnett and Martin Bright, The Observer (U.K.) , 04/27/03
I bet Obama would let him in here.
this man is a shame to everything that was ever known by the term Scot .
Another example of the evils of the west. Sure, it ain’t like beheading journalists, letting women burn, or restricting free speech, but it’s the west, so it’s ten times worse.
According to trial documents, the telephone was bought in 1996 with the help of Dr Saad al Fagih, 45, a bearded surgeon who heads the London-based Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia. This fundamentalist Muslim group is dedicated to the overthrow of the Saudi Arabian government but is not part of Al-Qaeda. Al Fagih, who has been regularly used by the BBC as an expert on Bin Laden, has in the past explained that Muslim scholars said the killing of civilians, including children, was allowed by the Koran as collateral damage in the holy war. It was al Fagihs credit card which was used to help to buy the £10,500 Compact-M satellite phone in the United States and it was shipped to his home in north London, according to American court documents. His credit card was also used to buy more than 3,000 minutes of pre-paid airtime. Last week al Fagih, who has not been arrested or charged in connection with any of these actions, said: I am willing to speak to the authorities if they ask me about this or any other issue, but not to the press.
For two years Bin Laden and his military commander, Muhammad Atef, used the phone to direct Al-Qaedas worldwide operations. More than 200 calls were made to the London home and mobile phone of al Fawwaz. Calls were also made to two public phone boxes in December 1996 and May 1997. One was on a street corner outside Willesden library in north London and another was close by, only a few minutes walk from al Fawwazs home.
Other calls were made to the offices of companies for which al Fawwaz worked. Al Fawwaz, who lived in Kenya from 1993-94 before moving to London, was head of a group called the Advice and Reformation Committee, based in Queens Park, northwest London, which has been described by the FBI as a front organisation for Bin Laden.
