Billy Ayers prevented from entering Canada

University association says academic freedom was violated

Bill Ayers, a controversial American academic, was prevented from entering Canada at Toronto’s City Centre Airport on Wednesday, according to the National Post. His hosts, the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA), knew in advance that he wouldn’t be admitted, according to a press release they issued before his arrival.
His exclusion should “raise red flags for citizens concerned with free and open debate,” OCUFA officials wrote in their release. Ayers was officially on the agenda to deliver the keynote address at a conference on media and higher education on Thursday. That’s despite the fact that OCUFA knew he would almost certainly be detained by the Canada Border Services Agency, which barred him from Canada in 2009.
Mark Langer, President of OCUFA said: “Bill Ayers is a respected academic, and in no way a threat to the peace and security of Canada. There is no reason why he should be kept out.” He pointed out that Ayers, a recently-retired professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, has won awards for the education reform work he produced in the 1990s.
However, Ayers is also considered dangerous by many people, because he was a founding member of the leftist Weather Underground, a militant protest group that bombed government buildings, banks, the Pentagon and the U.S. capitol in the 1970s. Their bombings were meant to draw attention to the anti-Vietnam-war movement. Although most bombings were preceded by evacuation warnings, the group did cause serious injuries. Ayers told the New York Times in an article published Sept. 11, 2001 that he doesn’t regret setting bombs and that he would “not discount the possibility” of doing it again.


Billy Ayers prevented from entering Canada

  1. Wise decision for Canadians..Ayers should be in jail..He and his wife are unrepentant terrorists..

  2. Bill Ayers has never stopped creating conflict.

    Canada was right to keep him out.

    Ayers was in Egypt in the beginning of the overturn of the government there.

    He was backing the flotilla to Hamas last year.

    He will always be going around the world attempting to create chaos.

    Ayers will always do that because he is the same person he was in the 1960’s. He will never change.

    What floats Ayers balloon?…creating chaos…and he is very good at it.

    Does anyone ever end up being in a better situation as a result of acting on Ayer’s influence in their life?


    But many have suffered as a result of following his advice and plans.

    Now that we have all suffered under the plans he and O worked out together, it is time to turn this around again.

    Canada was smart to keep him out.

    Ayers should have been in prison all of these years and we can thank the same Chicago Machine that kept him out of jail, for giving us the failure of O.

  3. I am glad to know I am free to think what the Harper government will allow me to think.

  4. Amazing how friends of Bill Ayers, and Bill Ayers himself, react to things like this. He and his wife are unrepentent criminals who would murder those they disagree with, yet demand to be welcomed with open arms by those who disagree with him. It is an indictment against our institutions of higher learning that this terrorist, with only a bachelor’s degree, is a professor and a “respected academic”. For the left, tolerance runs only in one direction.
