From the CBC; ‘It’s shocking’: Aaron Driver’s former lawyer says terror threat suspect was considered low risk
Driver moved to Winnipeg around 2011 and by 2014 was on the radar of CSIS, Canada’s spy agency, for his online activities tweeting support for ISIS.
In June 2015 he was arrested and RCMP got a peace bond, saying they considered him a terror threat. When he agreed to the peace bond in February 2016 there were conditions including living at a specified address in Strathroy and notifying a specified RCMP sergeant of any changes in address.
“They’re still monitoring very closely, there’s no doubt about it. I guess that end result that monitoring gave them some information and here we are today,” Tailleur said.
If Aaron Driver was being monitored how was he able to assemble at least two explosive devices?
And if the RCMP or CSIS were monitoring him “closely” why wait till he was ready to “blow” before attempting an arrest?
Could he have been stopped sooner?
Who was the credible source that informed the RCMP of an imminent threat?
Let’s hope this wasn’t a repeat of the Methadone Muslim Fiasco and Driver was purposely given a long leash that lead to his death.
It’s public knowledge that Canada’s security services are strapped for resources and struggle to manage the Islamic terror threat.
They simply can’t monitor all the bad guys 24/7.
Peace Bonds are an effort to control the bad guys when criminal prosecution isn’t a viable option, but the RCMP also allows returning Muslim terrorists to walk freely among us if they say “Sorry”. See – RCMP not charging jihadis who say ‘sorry’
How closely are they monitored if at all?
How long until we find out the hard way?
