“Foreign terrorist travellers” will be given “reintegration support.”
That means that the Trudeau government will shower money upon them, in the mistaken assumption that poverty and lack of economic opportunity that cause terrorism. Then they will be shocked, shocked!, when some of these men return to jihad anyway.
In reality, these jihadis are enemy combatants. They joined an entity that is avowedly at war with Canada, and has called for jihad massacres on Canadian soil. They should not be allowed back in.
