According to Toronto's CP24, the man charged with stabbing two uniformed Canadian Forces members this week once had access to secure locations at Toronto's Pearson International Airport.
Greater Toronto Airport Authority spokesperson Siobhan Desroches said the 27-year-old man “worked for a third-party tenant” of the airport and carried a restricted area identification card, allowing him to enter secure areas of the facility between December 2008 and March 2009.
Sources tell CP24 the man worked as a groundskeeper at the airport.
NOTE: In January, TheRebel.media's Ezra Levant reported exclusively that the number of Canadian airport workers fired as security risks has quadrupled since 2010, according to documents acquired through an Access to Information request:
In 2010, 31 people were refused security clearance. By 2014, that had more than doubled to 70. And last year — the year of the Islamic State — the number of refusals skyrocketed to 110.
In other words, four times a week someone applies for security clearance at a Canadian airport, and is refused because there’s something about them that is "adverse". How many aren’t caught?
Even more terrifying? In 2010, 11 people had their airport security clearance cancelled. Again, over the years, that doubled and tripled. By last year, the year of the Islamic State, it had quadrupled.
So overall, 152 people who were either working at airports, or applying to work there, were blocked or fired for being security risks, a massive jump from the year earlier.
Pearson Airport also installed a "gender apartheid mosque" for incoming Syrian "refugees" in December 2015.
