I'm curious how this one plays out. But glaring difference, he don't have Canadian citizenship. And if he did, since it wasn't by birth, it could of been removed for the terrorism charges.

No it couldn't. You may recall that Trudeau's Liberals have revoked that law, and even retro-actively given back to convicted terrorist their Canadian citizenship.

To Trudeau's Liberals, "A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian" no matter how unsavoury their actions, even against Canadians and the Canadian state's are. Remember, Trudeau himself envies the Canadian citizenship of those who acquire it through immigration and wished he could do so himself*.


*: Personally, if Trudeau wanted to renounce his Canadian citizenship (perhaps acquiring the Chinese one, since he admires them so much), go live somewhere else (perhaps the Aga Khan's caribbean retreat) while applying for immigration to Canada, come back here as an immigrant, wait the three (?) to five years needed and took Canadian citizenship again, I would have no problem with that - would get him out of our "hair' for that long at least.  ;D

Not meaning at all to reignite any debate about Omar's detention in Gitmo, or the Harper governments efforts to keep him there indefinitely, but trying to go to to Saudi at this time seems like a bad idea. They just murdered Khasshogi and Canadian and SA relations are not exactly at their best. Such a high profile visitor might attract some very unwanted attention or political reprisal. Don't do it bro.

You consider him your "bro"?

Most here, I think, would support his trip to Saudi Arabia.

Not that he needs it, but I'd contribute to a GoFundMe for the airline ticket.   :nod:
Do I love my job?  No.

But does it afford me the ability to go on lavish vacations and buy anything I want?  Also no.

Wait.. we paid him millions of dollars and now he wants to go to Saudi to visit his "sister" who has been under investigation previously...

Am I the one thinking this is insane? I think if he leaves this country.. he will take his money and not come back....

Why wont his sister come here? Why now? It is not Ramadan or anything that I'm aware of either.

Sorry I'm suspicious

Your bro? Really?

Please rethink your line of thought and be cognizant of the thread your posting on. We’re not too terrorist friendly here.
