u.s. peace activist enters canada, world keeps turning

Colonel Ann Wright has crossed the border into Canada.

Canada's security continues unchanged.

You may recall that celebrated peace activist and war resister Ann Wright has been denied entry into Canada several times, part of the Conservative government's lock-step with the US and its general contempt for peace activists (and peace!).

Yesterday, with the help of letters of support from MPs Joe Comartin, Brian Masse, and Bob Rae, Wright managed to get here.

She'll be speaking tonight at the International Student Centre at the University of Toronto, sharing the podium with war resister Patrick Hart and some others; details here.
