Canada reverses decision, tells Martha Stewart she can come visit

UPI News Service, 10/06/2005 

Canada Thursday reversed its decision to bar convicted felon Martha Stewart from attending a Pumpkin Regatta in Windsor, Nova Scotia.

Stewart announced on her syndicated talk show "Martha" Wednesday she had been denied a visa to attend the pumpkin festival and parade celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving Sunday.

The government's refusal to let Stewart into Canada because of her conviction for lying about a stock sale drew fire from Conservative Foreign Affairs Chief Stockwell Day.

"I have no fear of her burying us with her prison poncho throwing a homemade pie," Day said. "She's no threat to Canada. They should let her in."

Canada's CTV said organizers of the regatta reported Thursday Stewart was granted a temporary visa allowing her to cross the border and race across the lake paddling a giant pumpkin.

Stewart still must get permission from her U.S. probation officer to leave the country, however.
