New Citizenship Act allowing revocation of Canadian citizenship takes effect

“The Federal government says it now has the power to revoke the citizenship of some Canadians convicted of terrorism, treason or espionage.

A controversial new law, first introduced last June, went into effect on Friday.”

Uhmm no CBC, I don’t find it controversial at all, in fact I wonder why it wasn’t in place from day 1.

    khadr would be a good one to start with

    • Alain

      My understanding is that he does not, officially at least, have dual citizenship, so unfortunately it would not apply to him. I hope I am wrong but think not.

      • AmicusC

        damn, haven’t read the law this is the first I’m seeing of it. didn’t realize needed dual. thanks for clarification.

    • Get rid of his fat@$$ mum and sister. When there is no one to cook for him, then he’ll leave Canada.

      • P_F

        You forgot that hag Ms. May who will give him ‘O’ then ‘A’ and will also cook for him.

  • Alain

    Went to the link and actually managed to read this vile piece of propaganda and even made it through most of the comments. At least in the comment section there were many who supported the new law, but I admit to being amazed at the insanity, rage and outrageous bile coming from leftist comments. Frankly their accusations were as crazy as the Muslim cleric saying male masturbation will cause their hands to get pregnant. So I didn’t make it to the end of the comment section.

    • Most leftists are on a par with the Imam, though he is a tetch more sane.

      I’m glad you did it, and spared me some sick moments.

  • Surele Surele

    Controversial for whom, if we may ask?

    • Frau Katze

      What’s controversial about deporting criminals? No idea.

      • just a thought

        In addition to what D.N.B says, it also means the terrorists don’t like it, either. Oh, wait, you meant “controversial” to NORMAL people. Got it.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Controversial means the CBC doesn’t like it. Nor anything Harpo does for that matter.

    • WalterBannon

      controversial for the leftists who want to destroy our western capitalist libertarian culture and replace it with a fascist socialist dystopia

  • Icebow

    I heard that it isn’t permissible to render someone stateless; not sure on whose authority.

    • Alain

      They would not be stateless, since they have dual citizenship. That said I expect their home Muslim country (yes, they are the ones in question) would try to revoke their citizenship in order to prevent us from rendering them “stateless”. That game has been playing since the rebirth of Israel in order to claim the invented people are stateless refugees.

      • WalterBannon

        All muslims are members of the global Islamic state. If they deny this then they are apostates. Deport them all.

      Only if you subscribe to the UN’s beliefs that sovereign nations should not be allowed sovereign rule and their internal functions should be subject to oversight and tyranny by foreign diktats from the UN…

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Start with the elimination of dual citizenship BEFORE actual citizenship is ever conferred, but prior to that, there should be a decade long period, where someone has provisional citizenship (if you really want to grant it at all) where that person can have their citizenship revoked and declared illegal and be subject to deportation back to their homeland.
    Introduce the reason “failure to assimilate”.

      many in Congress hold dual citizenship

    • Minicapt

      That was formerly the “Legal Alien” classification; sometimes termed “Permanent Resident”.

    Revocation of citizenship doesn’t cut it for treason.

  • Good.
