In amongst all the stories about the terrorist attack in Orlando, we seem to have forgotten about an important story in this country that a Canadian, Robert Hall was executed by Islamic terrorist group, Abu Sayyaf.
Watch as I explain why I don’t think Canada’s response to the murder of John Ridsdel and now Robert Hall, has been strong enough.
Trudeau says we will work to bring those murderers to justice but doesn’t exactly explain how.
While I agree that Canada shouldn’t pay ransoms to terrorist groups, I think it’s fair to say that we need to do more than just talk in order to send a message to terrorist groups that taking the life of a Canadian will mean something.
