Hirsi Ali: Canuck?
Der Spiegel reports that the beautiful and brilliant Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been stripped of her Dutch citizenship by an erstwhile political ally, Rita Verdonk, Minister of Immigration. The Spiegel report clarifies that the decision was a purely discretionary one, and that Hirsi Ali had already told the public about the misinformation on her 1997 immigration application form.
It appears that she is going to the US, where she has already been offered a job by the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute. I think I speak on behalf of most Canadians to say she'd be welcome here.
