LOL no I would not want to to anywhere near the USA if I knew I was on their no fly list. I guess this guy is just pretty well screwed.

It really is like Nazi Germany or izrael. Guilty until proven innocent, except there is no way to prove your innocence...

UPDATE--The British gov't stepped in and an Air Transat flight is being rerouted so it doesn't go near US air space (which was the issue--if there was an emergency, the plane could have had to land on US soil) and he's off to Glasgow tonight with his family.

British man on no-fly list can't leave Canada

it makes no sense to me, i understand denying somebody from flying if they are believed to be a danger at the time they try to board the plane or purchase a ticket etc...

but surely there is some sort of arrangement that can be made that makes it 100% certain he/she has nothing on them or in their luggage or inside them, and are escorted by police and have to wear handcuffs etc etc, just for the sake of getting home, and then escorted of the airport property the opposite end.

regardless of the in's and out's of if they should be on the list, there must surely be some way of satisfying all concerned that they are safe to board the plane just this once, after all precautions have been put in place, if they are willing to comply with all checks and procedures before and during the flight to get them home.

simply saying "your on the list, your not allowed home" just sounds wrong in this case.

Canada is full at the moment... we are not taking any more applications. It sucks here anyways you don't want to visit.

LOL just kidding. Canada is still decent, but it has been getting too much praise. I don't want to go off topic but it is pretty much the same north of the border minus a few obvious things.

since harper (bush-lite) took office it's getting worse and worse. if feels more and more like a police state (g-20), than a nice wholesome place to live.

harper is trying so hard to fit in and be accepted with the nwo elites, it's bordering on pathetic.

it's like the guy who wants to join a fraternity so bad, he'll do anything to get in, and the fraternity seeing how
pathetic the guy is, make him do all the dirty work until he's no longer of use tell and him to get lost.

the sad part is harper thinks the rest of the world is his friend and doesn't see that they're using him.

can't leave

...if someone visits a country on a tourist visa and is then added to the no-fly list and isn't allowed to leave...what happens when their visa expires?

That is a good question, I am not sure of the answer. I think he qualifies to be here for the time being while this gets worked out. Canada is usually tolerant of tourists or immigrants who get stuck here unless you break a law or are politically active in an organization our government does not support. If this guy was a supporter of "hamas" or if he got a drinking and driving conviction while in Canada we would ship him on the next ice berg to Iceland.
