Convicted fraudster with taste for deadly accessories denied entry to Canada - read all about it

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the woman who in 1986 declared that "necklacing" would liberate South Africa, and was convicted of involvement in the killing of James Seipei (also known as Stompie Moeketsi) has been denied entry to Canada. Her trip was in part to attend an event connected to an opera about her life.

The CBC compares Madikizela-Mandela's case to Martha Stewart's.
The Globe report notes that even the Americans let her in.
The Star reminds us that at her fraud trial, the judge told her she was no Robin Hood.

UPDATE: Paul Wells points me to today's Star coverage. Thomas Walkom, no friend to the current Government, expands on the desirability of refusing the visa. It is understandable that Dion is questioning the refusal, since since one of his own MPs helped sponsor the application.
