Chelsea Manning says she was denied entry to Canada

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning has been denied entry into Canada due to her conviction for passing classified U.S. intelligence documents to WikiLeaks.

Ms. Manning, a transgender former Army intelligence analyst who was convicted in 2013 for leaking classified information while deployed in Iraq, wrote on Twitter that she has been "permanently banned" from Canada due to convictions similar to treason.

The document reveals how Manning disclosed her conviction under the US Espionage Act to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada department before her travel plans through a Quebec border post were blocked by the authority.

The name of the sender of the letter has been redacted.

The letter says that because she was convicted of offences that are equivalent to treason in Canada, she's inadmissible to this country.

Keeping an eye on said she was getting a Canadian legal advisor and meant to challenge the finding of forbidden nature before a Canadian tribunal.

The transgender soldier, born Bradley Manning, leaked diplomatic cables and other documents to Wikileaks in 2010, one of the largest breaches of classified material in United States history. In the waning days of his presidency, President Barack Obama commuted her sentence, allowing her to go free after serving seven years of the sentence.

On Monday, Canada's ministry of Immigration refused to comment on Manning's case, citing privacy laws. The classified and sensitive documents leaked by Manning - who had been assigned to an army unit in Iraq as an intelligence analyst - shone a light on the nature of warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan and included a video showing U.S. military launching an air strike that killed a dozen people, including two Reuters news staffers. "All applicants can expect impartial, professional treatment and clear, accountable decision-making", a spokesperson said.

Speaking to media on Monday, Justin Trudeau also fielded questions about Manning's case.
