RCMP urged to bar Bush from Canada

A lawyers' group is trying to block former U. S. president George W. Bush 
from visiting Calgary for an upcoming speaking engagement this month.

The group has asked the RCMP to bar Bush from entering Canada, citing 
torture and war crimes committed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.

In a letter to the RCMP war crimes section, and copied to Prime Minister 
Stephen Harper, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and other federal 
ministers and opposition MPs, the Lawyers Against the War group claims 
that Bush is "inadmissible to Canada ...because of overwhelming evidence 
that he has committed, outside Canada, torture and other offences."

Bush is scheduled to visit Calgary on March 17 to give a speech as a guest 
of the chamber of commerce.

Andy McCreath, whose company is bringing the former president to Calgary, 
said Wednesday he was unaware of the development and couldn't comment on 
the matter.

The group is seeking a reply before March 17, the day Bush is expected to 
touch down in Canada.
