Tories Didn’t Do Enough To Prevent Terrorism. Now Canada Is Catching Up

Since the beginning of the evil rampage of barbarism and death launched by Daesh in Syria and Iraq (and elsewhere) a few years ago, thousands of individuals from various other countries have been lured into the terrorist cause and have travelled into that region and beyond to participate in some way.

 Working closely with their international partners, Canada’s excellent security, intelligence and police agencies have identified approximately 250 of these so-called “extremist travellers” with a connection to this country who have journeyed to various locations overseas. About 60 are back in Canada, while some 190 remain abroad, including many who are likely dead.
