Finally! A chance to write about Rob Ford on PHT.
From QMI Agency:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers could put a snag in Mayor Rob Ford’s plan to go to the NHL Winter Classic in Michigan on Jan. 1, a Toronto-based immigration lawyer says.
In fact, they might have something to say about all of his future travel into the U.S., said Henry Chang, an immigration lawyer at Blaney McMurtry.
Chang said Ford’s televised admission he smoked crack cocaine and the subsequent media firestorm could cause serious problems for him when he tries to cross the border. Ford will need to do that to see his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs clash with the Detroit Red Wings at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on New Year’s Day.
QMI Agency wasn’t the only media outlet to contact an expert about his potential to successfully cross the border. Yahoo Canada News did the same thing, and got the same answer.
“His public admission of illegal drug use could be enough to prevent him from admission by US border officials,” immigration expert Michael Niren said.
