Controversial British MP and Author George Galloway gives "Free Palestine, Free Afghanistan, Free Speech" talk on Cross Canada stop in Vancouver
Controversial British former MP and Author George Galloway answers questions at St. Andrews Wesley Church in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia after giving his "Free Palestine, Free Afghanistan, Free Speech" talk to an audience of over nine hundred during his Cross Canada speaking tour on November 22, 2010. A federal court judge overturned a ruling allowing Galloway into Canada after federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney banned Galloway from entering Canada last year alleging Galloway supported terrorism after he turned over a humanitarian aid convoy to the Hamas government in Gaza.
