"We must eradicate Mr Irving's legitimacy as an historian"

AFTER a two week imprisonment and immigration hearing which began in Vancouver BC (above on October 29, 1992), and ended in Niagara Falls, Ontario (left on November 13, 1992), the adjudicator Kenneth Thompson (not a judge, he had an immigration, not a legal background), accused writer David Irving of a minor technical violation of immigration law, and he was bundled out of the country. The Chief Immigration officer at Toronto's Pearson airport had followed the televised court hearings. He apologised to Irving in person: "I have a copy of your book on the Hungarian Uprising," he said. "The Minister himself phoned this afternoon" -- indicated the phone on his desk -- "and asked to be told the moment the plane with you on board had taken off." -- Photo left: Niagara Falls Review, 4801 Valley Way, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada L2E 6T6
