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