Whistleblower Manning barred from Canada over his convictions in the U.S.

Toronto Sun: 'Manning became an internationally known figure when the former United States intelligence analyst leaked hundreds of thousands of classified documents about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan to WikiLeaks in 2010.

'[H]e was sentenced to 35 years in prison for several charges, including espionage and theft, but h[is] sentence was later commuted by former U.S. President Barack Obama.

'Manning was turned away from the Canadian border in 2017 when [h]e tried to enter the country as a visitor, because of h[is] serious criminal record.

'In a decision on April 8, the Immigration and Refugee Board determined that if Manning committed the same offence in Canada, it would be punishable by a prison term of more than 10 years.'
