|Yep, that's our leader.|
I know Canada doesn't matter much, but that's only true when we have a conservative government and are getting things right. Since Justin Trudeau became prime minister he's seemed to have set himself a goal to challenge his father as our worst prime minister ever. In that light, and given the evidence that we are flinging our doors open to unvetted refugees, this should come as no surprise:
Zakaria Amara is a convicted terrorist, serving a life sentence for his role in a plot to murder scores of Canadians. And now, thanks to a Trudeau government bill passed through the Senate this week, Amara will soon be given the privilege of Canadian citizenship....In the case of Amara, this “Canadian” was born in Jordan and raised in Saudi Arabia.He came to Canada as a teenager, became a Canadian citizen as a young man, and, by the time he turned 20, he was behind bars and charged with terrorism.Amara was the ringleader of a sophisticated terrorist cell known as the Toronto 18. He recruited, trained and groomed fellow Islamist extremists and worked towards a deadly terrorist plot.Amara wanted to detonate bombs in downtown Toronto, and coordinate shooting sprees at the CBC and the Toronto Stock Exchange. He planned to siege Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and carry out executions and beheadings of politicians, including the Prime Minster....Thankfully, this madman’s plot was foiled by an undercover police sting operation. Amara pled guilty to terrorism charges, and was slapped with a life sentence.Under the Harper government, Amara had his Canadian citizenship revoked and was set to be deported the moment he was released from prison.But things have changed under Justin Trudeau...Trudeau’s Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen told the Senate that the Liberal government had already initiated the process to restore citizenship to the convicted terrorist.
Given what the Liberal parties have done in Canada and provincially in Ontario, I'd expect them to lose at both governmental elections in the coming years. Unfortunately at the federal level we have an Obama problem. The prime minister has some sort of charisma that escapes me. He's a stooge, and he wishes he had community organizer on his resume. He was a drama teacher and really only won because of his family name and apparently, his good looks. A second term would be a disaster for Canada but he's still got a few years in his first term.
