Montreal man ordered to stop communicating with terrorists, hand over passport

Rebel Staff

A man the RCMP fear will partake in terrorism has signed a peace bond.

CTV reports that 22-year-old Merouane Ghalmi has not been charged with any offense and the contents of a sworn affidavit have been sealed.

Federal prosecutor Lyne Decarie said Ghalmi will hand over the passwords to his electronic devices, will wear a worldwide GPS tracker, and is forbidden from looking up terrorist or radical materials.

In addition, he has to hand over his passport and is not allowed to have a cell phone.

Ghalmi didn't fight the conditions and agreed that the RCMP's concerns were warranted.

“He agreed that the RCMP had reasonable grounds to believe that he could commit a terrorist offence so he accepted to follow these conditions for 12 months,” Decarie said.

Absolutely right Denver, Canada is way too friendly. Our openness and tolerance has been abused, and now we are expected to accept and allow ourselves to be assimilated by those we opened our doors to. We should be insulted and respond accordingly.

Liza, you say Canada is friendly, not stupid. I believe Canada is stupid because it is too friendly.
What we describe as Canada being open and tolerant is actually weakness, currently, in 2015. This weakness comes from almost 50 years of culture relativism that has been fed down our throat by Trudeau father. During PET time, this was all nice and it worked as other cultures were well more like us than different from us; after all most immigrants were Europeans and Christians. So the difference amounted to folklore mostly. But now…now it is a different game!! but we keep being told that no it is not a different game by Trudeau son. All is lovey dovey and the problem is you, the conservative, the racist who just do not accept that some cultures believe that women should cover up because they are responsible if rape occurs, etc,etc.

Judy, I think we can draw a reasonable inference from the information provided and conclude that the motivation for Mr. Merouane Ghalmi is religious based.

The legal definition of treason ,“The betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.”
If he is Canadian born we can’t deport him. After the year is up, if there are any more shenanigans why can’t we try him for treason? The definition seems pretty straight forward.
If he is a landed immigrant who has gained full citizenship it should be revoked if he is acting up after the 12 months is up. He needs to be watched for sure.( Ya we need Bill C-51) He has 12 months to lay off and then prove that he is fit to remain in this country as a free agent.
If he is waiting for papers,and not yet a Canadian citizen, he gets a do not pass go card. The only pass card he is entitled to is a boarding pass out of Canada today.
You want to come to Canada, you want to be stellar Canadian citizenship material. No wannabe Islamic terrorists need apply.
Canada is friendly not stupid.

Any person, who is a Civilized Human being, knows that tererorists cannot be reasoned with, nor negotiated with under any cercomstances whatsoever. The fact of the matter is this. their ultimate goal is the utter extermination of all human being, who does not share their ideology. These terroristic minded Persons, must be rounded up and expelled from Canadian Soil Immediately. DEPORT THEM ALL.

Freethinker, I’ve done the research. I’m not an Atheist!
commented 2015-03-28 15:10:16 -0400
freethinker…there is no mention of religion here…did you not notice? The man is a terrorist. Do you really believe all terrorists are ‘religious’? Sorry, but you are misinformed. Most IRA and Protestant terrorists in Northern Ireland were just political terrorists…they were largely atheistic or agnostic….but they were full of hatred. That’s all it takes to be a terrorist..

What comes to mind is a magician and his assistant. The assistant is always moving and attracts the attention while the magician does a slight of hand. These terrorists may be misguided , misinformed or evil but they are not stupid. Who is in the background doing whatever while this Ghalami character is getting the attention.
Remember every individual is responsible for his/her own security the police only show up after the fact to find out who done it.

Just “ask” him to stop being a terrorist. Gee, I never thought of that! Has anyone ever thought of just asking ISIS, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and all the rest to just stop killing people? Maybe they don’t know that the rest of us don’t enjoy it. If we just asked them nicely, who knows. They might stop if they thought we didn’t like them. See? That’s why I’m here. You need some to think “outside the box”.

Wade, they would not have mine. I know due process is a pain but it is among the laws and values that makes us civilized and it is civilization we fight to protect, after all.

Far too often, innocent folks are wrongly convicted on what police and Crown think is convincing evidence but that, in the end, proves not to support guilt.
commented 2015-03-27 22:35:52 -0400
Hmmmm. Please simply execute these people instead of taking it to a crown prosecuter. There’s enough evidence so the police could save an ENORMOUS expense by simply eliminating these terrorists. Officers, you would have my appreciation :)

Freethinker, (because I wouldn’t give a penny for your thoughts) Do your research and you won’t be a fool
commented 2015-03-27 20:23:24 -0400
Follow the conditions for 12 months…. and after that what is supposed to happen?? Oh yeah by some magical transformation he will be ok?
Like Marjorie said if you believe in Sharia law, those man made laws written by Infidels are garbage!
And what does Canada do?? Keep the door wide open to muslim immigration!!
commented 2015-03-27 19:23:06 -0400
Yet again, another example of a religious nutcase involved with terrorist related activities. Religion and the belief in any god is brainwashing at its best. Do the research and you too will become an atheist.
commented 2015-03-27 17:36:12 -0400
It is worrying because if one believes in the superiority of Sharia Law, our man-made laws can be ignored.
commented 2015-03-27 16:27:16 -0400
If they had found any contact divulging information he would become a spy and in wartime shot.
This puppy has eyes and ears on him 24/7 now.
Now what will the Libs and NDP say about this. What, We can’t hear you, get your feet out of your mouth.
commented 2015-03-27 16:25:45 -0400
so you want me to what…okay…now i can only do face to face… strange…why not just house bound him?
commented 2015-03-27 15:40:15 -0400
And nobody ever breaches a restraining order either. Bill C-51 can’t get implemented soon enough.
commented 2015-03-27 15:25:33 -0400
This article proves, yet again, that Bill C-51 is necessary and justified.
commented 2015-03-27 14:09:03 -0400
Well I feel much safer now. Nothing could possibly happen for the next twelve months. What a relief. Just how stupid do they think we are. Deport this pos immediately. He lost the right to live in Canada.
