Via Bob Broughton, we have a short video involving Amy Goodman's detention at the border:
But here's the part that made my antenna stalks perk up:
"The Canada Border Services Agency didn't respond to our request for an interview."
Really? Because they certainly seemed happy enough to chat with Stephen Taylor:
I contacted a spokeswoman for CBSA and they explained that while they cannot comment on specific cases, “all persons seeking entry into Canada must meet all requirements” set out by the CBSA. Applicants for entry must not have a record of criminality, for example...
The CBSA spokeswoman also told me that criminality is certainly a red flag when it comes to determining a person’s fitness for admissibility.
And while the CBSA's spokesweasel clearly didn't get into details, it's just as clear that there was an interview involving Taylor and someone from the CBSA. I find that fascinating, and when it comes time to figure out whose ass should be on the line for this blatant violation of Goodman's rights, I'd like someone to ask why Taylor was gifted with a chat when everyone else was told to take a hike.
Call me curious.
