CSIS overwhelmed with cases of high-risk travellers

MONTREAL – Most CSIS staff in Montreal are tied up with high-risk traveller cases, an intelligence officer said this week.

“Our goal is to detect them, it’s the RCMP’s job to stop them,” he said, explaining that intelligence officers such as himself don’t have the authority to arrest or charge suspects.

    I’m so glad all this diversity doesn’t cost us anything in the form of tax dollars.

    When will a term like “enemy combatant” become normalized as part of Canadian nomenclature? Individuals who conspire to murder Canadians in support of an extra-territorial terrorist agenda deserve no legal protections – none. They are enemy combatants on our soil and as such should be dispatched immediately.

    I have little faith in the capability of people who “work” in gov’t, beyond the MNDM.

      I still remember Primer Minister Jean Chrétien getting Omar Khadr’s father released from a Pakistani jail for being “a good Canadian!”

      I guess we all found out about that “good Canadian” when he was killed in battle thanks to that release.

        Benazir Bhutto warned Cruton not to release Khadr Sr.
