Border guards met Don Staniford today with plans to deport him.
« on: January 16, 2012, 08:09:38 PM »

So on his first day in court defending himself against Mainstream Feedlots accusations, Don was approached by the police and the Canadian Border guards with a deportation order.

Is this a coincidence or does Mainstream have this much clout with our government to be able to orchestrate this kind of action? Staniford has lived here in Canada for a few years. He's attended the Cohen hearings, and suddenly when he is about to air Mainstream's dirty laundry, the authorities step in to deport him??

I don't know any other details other than from his facebook page. It will be interesting hearing more of the story when this hits the papers...

No doubt some BC Liberals and fed Conservatives who have stock options in fish farms are (as usual) wasting tax payers money siccing the authorities on him.

looks suspiciously like Government interference, though this type of thing is not uncommon. I will bet that Harper will use this tactic more often, as he wages his vendetta on Environmentalists: Starting to look like the McCarthy of the fifties. Are you now, or were you ever an Environmentalist?  :(

You don't even have to be an environmentalist to feel the wrath of Harper's axe......he's been chopping away at his own scientists and biologists in Environment Canada and DFO all year with much more to come. Gotta clear the way for industry.....

If Staniford has not been convicted of a criminal offense (yet), the only grounds for deportation would be if he overstayed his Visa, lied to or mislead Immigration or ignored the need to apply for landed status. Can't kick him out for just being a thorn...

I haven't been able to locate any other information regarding any possible deportation other than what Staniford has provided.

Anyone else had any success?

With all of the illegals in Canada who have become "lost" it's a real surprise that Don Staniford has been singled out so quickly.

Could have been the court that turned him in to border services when they ID'd him and his citizenship for the court documents.
