If the Trudeau government can’t even do basic vetting of those who meet with the PM, how can we trust them to keep our nation safe?
The Trudeau government is claiming they weren’t aware that Joshua Boyle was under police investigation when he met with the Prime Minister.
As reported by iPolitics, “The Privy Council Office says it was not aware former Taliban captive Joshua Boyle was under police investigation before he and his family met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The information from PCO was obtained via an order paper question submitted to the House of Commons by Conservative MP Jamie Schmale. “The Privy Council Office was made aware on January 1st, 2018, that Joshua Boyle had been arrested and charged by the Ottawa Police Service for several Criminal Code offences,” it reads.”
Boyle met with Trudeau on December 18th, 2017, and was charged by Ottawa Police on December 30th. Boyle faces numerous charges, including two counts of sexual assault, eight counts of assault, and two counts of unlawful confinement.
Even before the public was made aware of the charges against Boyle, Trudeau faced serious questions about his judgement for taking the meeting, with many wondering why Trudeau would meet with someone who was once the husband of Omar Khadr’s sister Zaynab Khadr.
Trudeau had also failed to meet with previous hostages, despite his weak attempt to claim that meeting with Boyle was simply normal procedure.
What makes this even more disturbing is the fact that it shows a pattern of incompetence by the government when it comes to security. After all, this is the same government that allowed a convicted attempted murderer to be invited to a state dinner with Trudeau in India, and then tried blaming India for it.
If the government can’t even manage security around the PM, then how can we trust them to manage the security of our nation? Particularly when their plan for dealing with returning ISIS fighters is taxpayer-funded feel-good rehab programs.
Are we really expected to believe that the same government that failed to coordinate with Ottawa Police about Trudeau’s meeting with Boyle is somehow capable of turning ruthless ISIS fighters into members of Canadian society?
Not a chance.
