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.”

    Canada was at war with ISIS and if those individuals went off to fight for ISIS, technically they were committing treason. Prosecute them accordingly.

      And of course the CBC and media political panels are wanting forgiveness and lots of free stuff for the scum.

      • David Murrell

        The want $10.5-million paid out to each of these war criminals.

        • John the Mad

          And the payments are tax free.

        CBC will one day in the future be declared what it is rightfully – a criminal propaganda arm for those who wish to do our country harm in league with the globalist/marxist filth.

    • Watchman

      Unfortunately they have intersectional support from Progressives and SJWs who also want to see the destruction of Canada and Canadian culture, so it is almost impossible that anyone would ever be charged with treason – the Progressives understand they themselves would be vulnerable were treason charges to be aggressively pursued.

    • Bla Bla

      Prosecute – better – hang them.

  • ontario john

    Monitoring them?? Your kidding me right? This trash spent their time raping and murdering overseas, and now you want them to come back and wander the streets. Oh, and we must give them all sorts of free stuff and counseling. What a disgrace.

    • Watchman

      It almost sounds like a power play for increased resources. Just as if he is saying, “We can control the Jihadists right now, with our manpower and resources. If you bring in more Middle Easterners or North Africans we are going to ask for a dramatic increase in funding and manpower.”

      • If they’re focusing resources on monitoring Jihadis, then where are they getting the resources for monitoring law-abiding Canadians? Specifically Canadians who are critical of Liberal policies. Where is the Liberal Party getting money for its own partisan Political Police? Why is it the only time I’ve been monitored is when the Liberal Party is in power? Trudeau’s Political Police are dirty, they even attempt to recruit family members to report on you — reminiscent of the STASI (MfS) of former Communist East Germany.

        My point is they wouldn’t have time for this sort of bs if they were focusing resources on monitoring the Jihadis.

        • Bla Bla

          I think the question is already answered. They have been monitoring law abiding canadians over jihadis all this time. Hence the requirement for more funding to keep the clown show from completely spinning out of control.

      • Bla Bla

        We will never be able to control the jihadists. never. They only respond to one thing and that is utter and complete eradication.

  • tom_billesley

    If Canadians are really nice to them and treat them as prodigal sons, they’ll use Canada as a base to organize attacks into the United States and hold back the knife from Canadian throats, at least for now.

    Canada mustn’t anger them by prosecuting them for rape, for weapons charges, or for raising money for their jihad by drug dealing and robbery. In fact, yielding to them some informal no-go zones would prevent misunderstandings.

    • Watchman

      Britain found out that an unspoken agreement that its fanatical imams and jihadists would be left alone as long as they didn’t attack British targets has proved useless. Many of the European intelligence agencies used to complain that Britain did nothing about the network of jihadis inside Britain organising funding and support of terrorism elsewhere. Britain has tried to appease the crocodile hoping that it will eat it last, but even that strategy is shown to not to work. Soon Britain will find eager Jihadis returning from Syria will want to become martyrs for islam, and will use the organisations in Britain to allow them to do so.

        Heh, the scorpion will eventually sting the frogs back – it just can’t help it.

  • Bataviawillem

    And how much is that going to cost compared to not letting them back in.
    Lives will be lost because of these clowns that pretend to be a government.

    • Watchman

      Canada is bound by Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states that “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.” To keep out a Canadian citizen requires adequate proof of wrongdoing, and finding this proof in a war zone after the fact is likely almost impossible. Add to this the number of activist lawyers who would love the notoriety of defending people they believe should not only be allowed back into Canada, but share their same belief that Canada must be destroyed.

    • Bla Bla

      These clowns continue to commit their criminal acts because they know canadians are too scared to act.

    Isn’t this the guy that made up huge chunks of his war service accomplishments in Afghanistan?

    • ontario john

      He also defeated the Germans at Normandy single handed.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        …did he kill any enemy combatants personally? I doubt it. Which means he didn’t do piss-bugger-all in Alfghanistain other than screw the pooch and watch the alfghans diddle little boys…maybe he did more than watch.

      • Bla Bla

        I also believe that he was the real force in the first gulf war back in the 90s – not General Schwarzkopf as originally reported!

    • Bataviawillem

      Yep, always lying, about his war service, about keeping Canadians safe, it’s a habit he can’t kick.

      • Bla Bla

        Not are they not ready – they also have no credibility amongst those not infected by the liberal zombie virus.

  • Mr_bigstuff

    Why in the world would anybody believe anything this clown says?

    • BillyHW

      How soon we forget that he single-handedly orchestrated the D-Day invasion, eh?

  • Drunk by Noon ✓

    The last several jihadi attacks were carried out by terrorists that were under monitoring. Don’t believe this fool. He will risk Canadian lives, your lives, for political gain.

    • Watchman

      When he said they are not a “threat to Canada”, I suspect that he means that they are not an Existential threat to Canada. Obviously more Canadians are going to die, but he seems happy that Canada will survive regardless of the number of Canadian casualties. At least until he retires.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        ..not a threat to him personally is what he means. I’d bet he’s got a concealed carry permit and a Gen 5 G19 under his armpit…

        • Bla Bla

          Exactly. Time for them to be disarmed like their proletariat they claim to care so much for.

      • Bla Bla

        Bingo – in the eyes of the globalists, those born to their nations are fair game. In fact, they wish us all dead and replaced with easily controlled turd worlders.

  • Del Evans

    Time for an all out violent mob to attack the government if one of Trudeau’s pet jihadis attacks Canadians. Make this government fear the people.

    If they join the Liberal Party of Canada and do volunteer work for us that will prove they have become well re-integrated into Canadian society.

      Indeed. But self perseverance seems to be taking a back seat to political correctness.

    I drive in the expectation that Canada will eventually experience British-style 7/7 attacks or Spanish-style train bombings by those who our elites have invited in to colonize this country. Mass public transit just won’t be safe.

    • Bla Bla

      If you can – live outside of the major cities, don’t take public transport, stay away from soft target areas. This government has no intention of protecting us from their esteemed ‘guests’.

    Especially after their refusal to enforce our nations laws against the hordes of illegal invaders coming over our southern border. They are nothing more than a clown show – apologies to clowns everywhere.

    “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.”
    Yeah, sure, just like you stated you were the ‘architect’ of “Operation Medusa”. We all know how that turned out.

  • J. C.

    Yeah, I’m totally comforted by a guy born in India telling me that Canadians aren’t in danger from other violent foreigners…

    Oh, I feel so much better now that Sajjan tells me not to worry because the gov’t is looking out for me..
