Federal government document says that when it comes to ‘Canadian’ ISIS terrorists, the government “must facilitate their return to Canada.”
According to a Global News report based on government documents detailing how Canada deals with returning ISIS terrorists, the government works to facilitate the return of the terrorists to Canadian territory, and has laws that aren’t crafted to successfully punish those who left our country to fight for an evil enemy.
The report casts doubt on whether returning ISIS terrorists will be charged, saying of those investigations “Often, they require evidence of an individual’s activity in foreign conflict zones, or rely on information provided by partners that we are not authorized to disclose in court,” according to the documents. “The RCMP also faces challenges in collecting digital evidence, including access to encrypted communications.”
Clearly as the threat of returning ISIS terrorists has grown since 2015 (the more ISIS loses on the battlefield the more terrorists return), the government has failed to give Canada’s security authorities the laws and resources they need to deal with the threat:
“While the government has provided few details about how it is dealing with “returnees,” the RCMP documents reveal the standard operating procedures that have been put in place, and underscore what police have been saying quietly for some time: that they are struggling to charge returning Canadians over their involvement in terrorism in countries like Syria, forcing them to look at other options.”
And here’s where the Trudeau government’s obsession with letting terrorists keep their citizenship is directly exposing Canadians to needless danger:
“Unlike the United Kingdom, which has revoked the citizenship of ISIS fighters so they cannot return, Canadians who go abroad to commit terrorism have a “right to return,” according to a Briefing Note prepared for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. “Therefore, even if a Canadian engaged in terrorist activity abroad, the government must facilitate their return to Canada,” said the document obtained by Global News.”
Think about that for a moment.
“Right to return.”
“Must facilitate their return to Canada.”
How the hell did we get in a situation where we are giving terrorists the ‘right’ to return and actually using government resources to help them come back to our country?
“Facilitate their return” means that taxpayer dollars are being spent making sure ISIS terrorists can come back into our country, even as the government refuses to change the laws to arrest those terrorists in Canada.
Absurdly, we are actually paying to put ourselves at risk.
Making this all even more insane is the fact that our close ally the UK is revoking the citizenship of ISIS terrorists. Our other allies like France and the US are actively eliminating those ISIS terrorists overseas so they can’t come back.
We could be doing the same things. Yet the Trudeau government refuses.
Canada appears to be the only country with a government so pathetically stupid that we’re spending our own taxpayers money to bring ISIS terrorists here.
That’s why Canadians have the right to be angry at the Trudeau government’s failure to stop ISIS fighters from coming back to Canada. There are things our allies are doing that could easily make our country much safer, yet the Trudeau government refuses to take action.
This federal government has abdicated their duty to keep Canadians safe.
