ISIS terrorist Aaron Driver couldn’t have been any clearer. In a homemade video, released by the RCMP, Driver didn’t mince words about his intentions or his hatred for Canada.
“I give my pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, his call for jihad in the lands of crusaders, and I respond to this call”
During a press conference after Driver was killed, RCMP deputy commissioner Mike Cabana noted that Driver had “constant contact” with other ISIS terrorists abroad.
So why did so many media outlets report this as a “lone wolf” attack? Driver himself considered himself a member of ISIS. And he worked with other ISIS agents.
Driver may have been a depressed and deranged man, but he was also part of a network of radical Islamists. And the authorities were absolutely correct in issuing a peace bond to restrict Driver’s abilities to carry out an attack.
What helped authorities find and stop Aaron Driver from committing an atrocity on Canadian soil was Bill C-51 – Stephen Harper’s controversial anti-terrorism bill.
The anti-terrorism bill that Justin Trudeau campaigned against in the last election is at least partially responsible for thwarting this attack.
Watch as I explain why Canadians should hope that Trudeau will now think twice about gutting the bill.
