Ashton Larmond’s secret plan to join ISIL

Ottawa jihadi Ashton Larmond was so bent on joining the Islamic State that days after authorities revoked his passport he started making secret plans to leave Canada undetected, crossing first into Alaska, then travelling to Russia by boat, and ultimately to Afghanistan.

Larmond had originally booked a flight for Istanbul to later join ISIL in Syria but authorities invalidated his passport three days before his scheduled Sept. 20, 2013 departure.

Increasingly frustrated about his travel ban, Larmond confided to an undercover RCMP agent that he was making plans to “escape Canada completely off the radar,” according to court filings from Larmond’s surprise guilty plea on Friday. He’s now serving 17 years in prison for counselling a person to carry out a terrorist activity.

    It would be nice if they served every day of their given sentences working at building a new prison meant for their ilk a few hundred miles past the dead end of the nearest barely passable bush trail connected to civilization.

        I’ve raised that point before.
        There should be an arctic prison system.
        Sheriff Joe style.

    I can’t say this enough times, let them go, THEN cancel their passport. It is the only responsible way to deal with it.

      A hundred upvotes if it was possible.
