So many layers of nonsense

As I have been saying (JWR is Jody Wilson-Raybould, the aboriginal woman who attempted a coup against Trudeau's leadership, and is still in the news, as it sounds like the government didn't want the 'Indian' to upset their protection of the Catholic Church):

More wtf news from Canada:  "Ottawa wanted U.S. whistleblower Chelsea Manning to come to Canada so she could be kicked out in person" (Humphreys) (my emphasis in red; it's Solomonic!):
"The government of Canada asked U.S. whistleblower Chelsea Manning to travel to Canada so border agents would be able to physically kick her out of Canada.

The odd request was made by government lawyers last week in anticipation of an immigration hearing scheduled to begin Thursday for the former U.S. soldier who leaked thousands of U.S. documents that changed the public’s view of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Canada Border Services Agency is seeking to have U.S. whistleblower Chelsea Manning declared inadmissible to the country, which would prevent her from visiting and speaking at events in Canada.

The hearing on whether Manning is eligible to visit Canada is to be held by video conference.

Lawyers on behalf of the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness asked the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) to postpone the hearing until Manning is in Canada for it, rather than participating over a video link from her home in the United States.

The government said that if she wasn’t physically in the country, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) wouldn’t be able to remove her, if the government wins its case.

“The purpose of a removal order is to compel an individual who is found to be inadmissible to leave Canada. Should the (IRB) issue a removal order against an individual who does not attend their hearing from a location in Canada,” the government told the IRB in written argument, it would “be impractical for CBSA to enforce the order.”

Manning’s lawyers objected to the request.

In a decision Monday, IRB adjudicator Marisa Musto dismissed the government’s motion, saying the intent of Parliament was simply for people who aren’t allowed to be in Canada to not be here.
If Manning is found to be inadmissible after the hearing, the impact on Manning would be the same wherever in the world she was, Musto said.

“If she were physically in Canada when the order was made, the requirement would be that she leave Canada. Given that she is already outside Canada, a fact which is not in question, it can be said that the ‘objective’ of (immigration laws) … would, de facto, be fulfilled,” Musto said in her ruling."
