pornopetepokeyEarlier we reported that Porno Pete, AKA Peter LaBarbera, had provoked an arrest by Canadian authorities after refusing to leave the University of Regina, an act that surely will end up in a revised edition of Fox’s Book of Martyrs. Word is coming now that he is on his way back to Chicago, voluntarily cutting his hate-cation short:

An American anti-gay and pro-life activist has decided to voluntarily cut his visit to Saskatchewan short following another run-in with the Canadian Border Services Agency.

Peter LaBarbera was questioned by CBSA Tuesday morning in relation to his arrest at the University of Regina on Monday.

The Regina Police Service held LaBarbera in custody overnight at CBSA’s request, said police spokeswoman Elizabeth Popowich in an email Tuesday morning.

LaBarbera had been initially denied entry to Canada on April 10 under hate speech laws. He appealed and won, under the agreement he would leave the country by April 17.

Well, then, that was fun for everyone involved, I’m sure.
