(in case you couldn't tell)
Your sarcasm is duly noted. However, I remember when the Canadian Forces were in Kandahar. There was a 16 yr old girl working with them both as an interpreter and providing basic intel. The taliban even kidnapped her 10 yr old brother and tortured him, trying to get him to talk. He didn't give his sister away. When it was time for the Canadians to leave, they strongly suggested the girl come with them for her own safety. She refused saying, "How can I help change my country from within if I'm not in it?"

Certain right-wing people on uere were wrong again....something about Canada �turned her away� or something?


Well for once you were right. [B-o]

And like I said before. I'll give credit where credit is due when our Gov't and it's leaders when they do the right thing. So this is a win for Mr. Trudeau and his gov't. Now, all they have to do is to keep her and the girl from Saudi Arabia safe from that certain element of Canadians who think they have the right to impose their draconian religious views on others.

Thankfully they got her out before the lunatics in Pakistan (no offence to the sane ones like Fighter) got their hands on her.

But a question. With a story like this why is there no other print media apparently covering it and when you Google Asia Bibi coming to Canada all I could find is stories from last year?

She's not out yet. Hence why I said, lets send some CSOR boys to chaperone her to the airport.

Well since I won't sign up for CTV I don't know what the talking heads said but I did notice one thing that's more than a little odd about the CTV story. If you look, the dates are as follows from left to right.

Jan 5, Jan 6 and Jan 4th which leads me to believe there's something wrong with this story. It doesn't take 24 days to get from Islamabad to Ottawa for a photo op. So, if this woman is really coming to Canada where are the other media outlet stories, because right now there are a great big zero when you google it? Also knowing Beaver Fever, why would he wait that long to post this latest revelation because I'm pretty sure he couldn't wait that 2 weeks period to gloat. :lol:

So, until someone can post an actual story from a reputable news source I'm going to remain skeptical that this is really happening.

I hope Beave's correct and she is coming to Canada. We need more positive stuff like this.

Please don't let it be turned into photo-op electioneering.

Thank you.


Everytime I Googled Asia Bibi and Canada all I got were old stories. But apparently there's nothing "official" yet and all we have is a statement from the gov't that they're working on it and one from Wilson Chowdry of the British Pakistani Association telling the Huffington Post she's coming?

So hopefully there isn't a screwup with the Pakistani gov't letting her go because IIRC they signed an agreement with the radical opposition stating they'd prevent her from leaving the country.

That was before the last decision was handed down today. The agreement was likely until the final ruling had been made. Now that it's been made, and we've offered asylum, she will probably be here shortly. Especially since her family is already here.

I didn't realize her daughters were already here. So once again, good for our Gov't now all we have to do is get her here in one piece.
