Canadians ‘well protected’ from returning Islamic State fighters: Sajjan

At the Halifax International Security Forum, Sajjan said the military and other security agencies are taking measures to ensure that Canadians who fight with the Islamic State pose no threat if they return to Canada, while abiding by international law.

He told reporters returnees are being monitored to ensure they are not a threat.

“We will make sure that we put every type of resource into place so that Canadians are well protected,” Sajjan said as the three-day conference began Friday. “Our main priority is making sure that they don’t become a threat to Canada.”
