Justin Promises Terrorist Friendly Liberal Government To Islamic Conference #elxn42

“…Trudeau said his government would repeal the Conservative government’s controversial Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, saying it “devalues Canadian citizenship by creating two classes of citizenship.”

“Liberals will guarantee that all Canadians’ fundamental rights are respected as guided by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms,” the statement said.

The act became law in June 2014. While several elements of the law remain controversial, a provision that came into effect in May of this year expands the grounds on which the federal government can strip dual nationals of their Canadian citizenship, even if they were born in Canada.

The provision gives the power to revoke citizenship, in some cases, to elected officials and not a federal court.

“There is a suggestion that some of us might be less Canadian than others, a suggestion of who ought to decide who stays or goes from Canada be an elected politician instead of our justice system. I think that’s wrong,” Trudeau said during his speech.

The changes are currently being challenged in court by a coalition of civil liberties groups.

In a statement, the Conservative candidate for Ajax described Trudeau’s remarks as “more evidence that he’s just not ready,” to be prime minister.”

    Just what we need is someone running Canada giving more rights to terrorists. Like I always say what the hell is the matter with these governments that are supposed to be protecting Canadians born and raised here? My ancestors did not fight for Canada for some inept politician to give more rights to these so called people than to Canadians born here.

    • Because our politicians seem to like giving our country and its freedoms away to foreigners.

    They should not be able to strip citizenship from dual citizens of other countries that are part of the British monarchy.

      The Lebanese Canadian’s who cryed for the government to get them out of Lebanon when the fighting went hot, and then went back three months later have pretty well killed of a lot of support for dual citizenship. I’m tired of Canada being the middle east’s R and R centre.

    Shiny Pony has few qualities that anyone could point to that suggest he has any political potential at all among his peers beyond being an amiable left wing trust fund baby. His apparently all in no holds barred vote whoring of iffy constituencies like radical muslims is certainly one area where he seems to be willing to go for broke.

    I expected this from the golden boy my bigger issue is with these so called civil liberties some have said you should not be arrested for thought or threat but only action.
