Our allies in the fight against ISIS, handle their returning jihadis by stripping them of their citizenship or assassinating them on the battlefield but Canada’s weak response is to rehabilitate these traitors, and this should concern all Canadians.
As ISIS is decimated on the battle fields of Syria and Iraq following new direction under General Mattis and President Trump, those fighters with citizenship or roots in the west will either find another soft spot from which to continue their fight or return home to the West.
According to CSIS director Michael Coulombe, 60 of the 180 Canadians who have left to fight abroad have thus far returned home from participating in terror activities abroad.
When they come home, the Canadian government offers 'reintegration' to these individuals who present real security threats.
Watch as I explain how the UK is approaching this very real threat, and then try to imagine a member of our Liberal government suggesting such a tough approach.
Instead, last week Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told CBC News:
"Canada does not engage in death squads, With the battlefield activity winding down, there is a very real question about where the foreign fighters go"
We know Trudeau is against stripping the Canadian citizenship of terrorists, a practice the previous Harper Conservatives employed. This past June the Liberals passed a law barring it even in the case of individuals convicted of terror ties.
Between Goodale's comments and the actions of our authorities, it seems the Liberals believe in being nice and compassionate to terrorist returnees, but where are the treason charges or the terror related charges?
