    The Canadian authorities have barred Italian philosopher Antonio Negri from entering Canada to deliver a series of University lectures.

    In addition to being a professor/philosopher, he's a convicted double murderer, and is lucky not to be still in Prison.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Negri

    He might be said to have engaged in un-Canadian activities.

    Convicted by whom?

    There is very little info on his supposed criminality on that wiki apart from stating a lack of direct proof of his alleged crimes, his being held in prison for 4 years between 79-83 without trial, and a description of what being a professor in a mafia state is like(which Italy, for most of its' existence since WW2 has been).

    Here's the relevant extracts from both SL's and my link.
    Negri was arrested in 1979, accused of insurrection and masterminding the 1978 kidnapping and murder of Aldo Moro, the leader of the Christian Democratic Party, carried out by the ultra-left terror group, the Red Brigades. He was exonerated of the latter charge, but was convicted on the association charge.
    In 1983, while in prison awaiting trial, Negri was elected to the Italian parliament and released from prison on the grounds of parliamentary immunity. However, when the Italian Chamber of Deputies revoked his immunity, Negri fled to France with the aid of Amnesty International. In 1984, he was sentenced in absentia to 30 years.
    In 1997, Negri decided to put an end to his legal saga and returned to Italy to serve out the remainder of his sentence. It was eventually commuted and he was released in 2003.

    He was indicted on a number of charges, including "association and insurrection against the state" (a charge which was later dropped), and sentenced for involvement in two murders.

    Being a murderer has never been grounds for not being allowed into Canada. They routinely allow murderers in. After the Second World War, for example, they pretty much imported a whole Waffen SS Division.

    Did Negri ever admit to the murders?

    Italy was a State at war with itself until the early 90's from what I have read.

    America is governed by murderers in any case Count.

    He may have as he plea bargained for a reduced sentence. But it was all nonsense .. straightforward political persecution. Everything is know about the Red Brigades at this stage ... their leadership, structures, etc. No one involved has ever suggested that Negri had any role (and there was more than one rat) and no one outside of the RB has ever produced the slightest proof that he was involved or linked in any way.

    Gerry Adams was barred from entry in 1986 but has visited several times since the late 90's. Which just goes to show that one sort of "terrorist" can be successfully rehabilitated while another will always remain a danger to the state.

    Strange, seeing as they permitted him entry over a decade ago.

    Hmmmm!


    Deemed Rehabilitated

    If an individual only has a single misdemeanor on their record, ten years after they complete their full sentence they may be deemed rehabilitated by virtue of time and considered admissible to Canada once again. If a person has more than one misdemeanor or has a felony conviction on their criminal record, however, deemed rehabilitation may not apply to them, and they may never become admissible by the passage of time. This means that anyone with multiple misdemeanors or a single felony on their criminal record can be considered inadmissible to Canada even 30 or 40 years later unless they have been given special approval for entry.

    What has Jarry ever been convicted of?

    Like many senior IRA men surprisingly little even though, back in the day, all that was required to have you locked up for a considerable period was the sworn evidence of a Garda superintendent that you were a member. But Gerry Kelly received two life sentences for bombings in London which caused death and I have noticed him gracing Canadian Friends of Sinn Fein events. Also Martin Ferris who was caught importing a fairly large quantity of weapons and explosives into Ireland. And others...

    George Galloway was once refused permission to enter on the grounds of being a threat to national security. This seemed to be the consequence of his opposition to the war in Afghanistan and not any criminal conviction .. as I suspect he had none.
