Extremist foreign funding in Canada needs to be addressed

…Project SOMEONE’s director told CBC in an interview, “Go to the Global Terrorism Index [GTI] and look through the major terrorist organizations and which countries are affected by terrorism in the worst ways and whether jihadism, as you’re calling it, is in fact the biggest plague that the western world is perceiving right now.” (CBC did just that and found that GTI lists 19 of the world’s 20 most fatal terrorist acts in 2016 as having been carried out by Islamist terrorist groups.)

While the government seems content to support the work of someone who does not believe that jihadi terrorism is the main terrorist threat facing the West, it chose earlier this month to vote down a novel bill that could have made a real dent in Canada’s anti-radicalization efforts.
