Further into the Dark Ages
Only two days after a man on the no fly list is flown home to Britain over the airspace of many countries without gaining permission, our Federal government, claims that "every country he might fly over on the way home from Khartoum needed to give explicit permission." Is there no lie too obvious or too ridiculous for this government? Have they no shame at all?
Given that they are willing to make a mockery of our Constitution - "It [the Government's court filing with respect to Mr. Abdelrazik] claims the right to return to Canada, enshrined in the Charter, applies only to citizens who present themselves at a border post." - I guess the answer is no.
