Tories move to strip citizenship from “Canadian-born” Muslim terrorist #elxn42

Muslim Terrorist Saad Gaya

Muslim Terrorist Saad Gaya To Be Shipped Back To Islamic Failed State Of Pakistan

The Harper government is attempting to revoke the citizenship of a convicted terrorist who was born and raised in Canada, Maclean’s has learned—a first under a controversial new law that has triggered intense debate during the election campaign.

Saad Gaya, 27, is believed to be the only Canadian-born citizen (terrorist or not) to ever face the prospect of being stripped of his citizenship. Until now, there was no legal mechanism to undo what has long been considered an irreversible birthright.

    Way to go !

  • Martin B

    He chose to be a terrorist and a traitor to Canada. That choice has irreversible consequences.

    • I hope he gets turfed.

    • Ron MacDonald

      Too bad we no longer have the death penalty.

    • Achmed

      Who you want to label as “terrorists” my community call Freedom Fighters.
      I bet you would have expelled Nelson Mandela too.

      • Frances

        In his “counselling to kill” day, probably. And with cause. This is NOT South Africa as then was.

  • I received a text message update from the Ottawa Citizen that the ringleader, who was the first to lose his citizenship, has launched a constitutional challenge of the law. I hope Harper uses that in the campaign.

    • Me too.

    • Shebel

      I wonder who pays these Lawyers. Hopefully it is not me.

      • ntt1

        corrupt union bosses like the irish terrorist sid ryan.

        • Shebel

          Why would a Union -much less a corrupt one— support terrorists ? What is to gain.

          • ntt1

            same reason all cultural marxists support them; a common goal to destroy western democracies

          • David Murrell

            Friendships with hard-left allies, amongst the union leadership. But as you say, the rank-and-file gain nothing.

      • Bataviawillem

        Wrong, it is you.

        • Achmed

          That is what legal aid if for. To help the poor and the wrongfully convicted.
          I hope the legal challenge cost millions. Just what the government deserves for persecuting these people for their views.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      Yeah he will , Comrad Black is in charge of that bill .

  • Alain

    Then this indicates he also has at least one other citizenship. I wonder why there is no mention of such vital details. Oh, I forgot myself for a second.

    • David Murrell

      It’s a Macleans article.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      Those guys should be deported to an isolated island , where they can carry out to bomb the ocean waves .

  • Can this be done legally?

    It’s one thing to take away the citizenship of someone who was born elsewhere but what about those born in Canada?

    • ntt1

      if he has duel national status then he can be dumped, my parents are both british immigrants when i chose to go tho school in britain that gave me duel citizenship and a lot more opportunities than just having Canadian Visa status, I n my case it all expired as soon as i was 21 i believe.

      • I see.

        But he was actually born in Canada.

        Troubling.

        I’d hate for the law to be used against a born citizen who just rubbed the government the wrong way as opposed to being a terrorist @$$hole.

        • ntt1

          Was born here too, but as of 30 years ago due to my parents being British i was given favored status

          • Frances

            Do know people with dual citizenship. Very handy when travelling in Europe. But they’re still really, really Canadian.

          • ntt1

            what like falmi?

          • Frances

            Definitely not: are hard-working productive Canadians. Further, I rather think some European countries don’t let you renounce your citizenship. Italy had some such deal, as I remember.

          • Alain

            France is one unless there has been a fairly recent change.

          • Frances

            But they let you acquire same: ask Mulcair.

          • I see.

        • I’m with you on that. Moreover, if he’s natural born Canadian you can’t take away his citizenship — for any reason. It’s called forced “exile”, something that only happens in dictatorships.

          Harper’s people better get on top of this right away, because if not then they have given opposition and the Courts the pretext to rescind the entire law, and we won’t even be able to take away citizenships of foreign-born war criminals, much less terrorists who have no right to stay on our soil.

          If they need to keep him in jail in Canada for the rest of his life, then fine. Otherwise, why not take away the citizenships of Paul Bernardo and Clifford Olsen and exile them as well? We all know the answer to that — we can’t. Sorry folks, but this isn’t going to fly.

          • Minicapt

            De facto change of allegiance from Canada to a foreign/enemy entity.

            Cheers

          • canminuteman

            I generally agree with you, but I think if you are a duel national, their is no reason why we can’t deport you to the other country you have nationality in.

          • ntt1

            Once again like the idiot media you have created a false parallel Olsen and bernardo are not duel citizens .

            under international law you cannot create stateless persons cancelling one aspect of duel citizenship doors not do this as you must know. You have no argument

          • That’s precisely my point — you can’t leave anyone Stateless. And if your second citizenship is with a country where you do not have natural-born rights, then they are under no obligation to take you either. In fact it is unlikely that your second-citizenship country will take you, especially if you’ve been convicted of a serious crime.

            We have to stick to the “natural-born” rule. There has to be some sort of base-line that can apply to everyone across the board. If the Macleans story is true, Harper better look into it fast or Conservatives are going to sabotage our own, otherwise sensible, legislation.

            Don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just telling you what’s going to happen if the case isn’t clarified.

          • I think that sets a dangerous precedent. Wouldn’t it be better to hang him for treason?

          • Alain

            Better in my opinion would be to charge him with treason, which is not a matter for civil courts. The law is there and should be used. In fact it is shameful that it was not used for Khadr.

    • canminuteman

      The very concept of citizenship is different around the world. My wife was born in Canada to German immigrant Canadian citizen parents, but because she is of German blood, if she went to Germany, they would consider her German. Her brother, also born in Canada was given the opportunity to apprentice in a family business, but didn’t because Germany considers him German and wold have drafted him. I would have gone, but to each his own I suppose.

      • My question was a legal one.

        I think it’s time to jail or hang people for treason.

  • G

    He’ll go blubbering to the courts and …..(Ooooo big “surprise” here), the courts will harrumph and bluster and find after enormous deliberation that stripping him of his citizenship is unconstitutional. —- yeah big surprise. Just like the last 200 court decisions in this country.

  • Shebel

    Why do all these people hate to back to the Home Country ? I don’t believe that they will be killed.

    What is this? Every Muslim that sneaks into a Western Democracy will be Killed if they ever go back home?
    What about the assholes that get Citizenship ,live on welfare in the West—and make regular trips back to their Country ?
    Sweet Christ.

    • ntt1

      and support themselves on multiple wives claiming child support

      • Shebel

        That is probably the reason.
        Actually, I am being really serious.
        Imagine that you have 4 wives and each has 4 children and you live in Canada. How much money would you have net,clear ,cash in pocket to surpass welfare ?
        Nobody will answer this.

        • ntt1

          why do you think they are not scamming welfare too?

        • David Murrell

          I did access-to-infotmation request on this, and under Canadian law federal benefits can only go to one wife. But provincial ial benefits are another matter.

    • Frances

      One trip back “home”: welfare should be cut off as being used for non-essentials. Double that if “refugee”.

  • ntt1

    the huge lie being perpetuated by the lame stream media is that this terrorist has duel citizenship. for example tom mulcair is a duel citizenship holder with a french nationality claim equal to his canadian citizenship, should mr mulcair commit terrorist acts against Canada,than he too could be stripped of his canadian passport and shipped off to marsais or some other beauty spot.

  • Maxsteele

    I would much rather they execute these scum bags for treason then revoke their citizenship. My problem with this is that while we have a conservative government using this law to punish terrorists I fear that when the socialists (liberals) or communists (NDP) ever get in power they may use this to use it against their political enemies. Let us imagine a social conservative against abortion or religious catholic against gay marriage or a parent against over-sexualizing their children in sex ed in schools……this is a slippery slope I fear.

    • ntt1

      and a very real one i’m afraid the leftists will use c-51 to shut down all non PC thought ,communications and acts of rebellion against the favored classes of sodomites and Muslims,

      • Maxsteele

        agreed!

  • BillyHW

    Send that Paki packing.

  • barryjr

    I don’t see how a natural born Canadian with only Canadian citizenship could be stripped of their citizenship as they would have nowhere else to go. In this situation I would fully expect the courts to rule against the stripping of citizenship.Just keep the miscreant in jail for life with life meaning until they die.

    • canminuteman

      You are right, and I think that is the law. To deport someone they must have another citizenship.

      • John

        I think barryjr is right as well. However, if they have dual citizenship, as is the case with some of the Toronto 18, then stripping them of their Canadian citizenship would be quite OK.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    Comrad Black will adopted him , he should be lock up for life with no freedom whatsoever.

    • ntt1

      Why on earth would Conrad black come into this?apart from a pathetic need by you to showcase your frighteningly lite grasp on reality.as l have pointed out in the past,using a combination Latino-Uzbek dictionary then an Uzbek -English dictionary to formulate comments is just too risky

  • moraywatson

    If the courts interfere in this, our last resort is to re-establish capital punishment for treason.
