Canada: Tommy Robinson Gets Arrested for “Immigration Offences,” Banned from Leaving Calgary

Tommy Robinson’s entire brand is going to various global locations and getting arrested.

The Independent:

Tommy Robinson was filmed being arrested after visiting Canada for a podcast tour.

Officers in Calgary handcuffed the right-wing activist, 41, on suspicion of an immigration offence and led him into the back of a police van.

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley Lennon, said he was released later on Monday but had to hand in his passport to Canadian authorities.

He posted on X: “Ok I’m FREE, well sort of, none of this makes sense.

“I’m now detained in Calgary, prevented from leaving the city, these conditions stop me from continuing my tour of Canada and meeting with guests for podcasts. I’m not even allowed to leave to travel home.”

In a video posted to his X account, he asked what he is being detained for: “This is absolutely insane. Get me a lawyer? Can you not tell me what I’m under arrest for?”

I don’t really know if I care about this.

He does it on purpose as a publicity stunt.
