Nat, I was looking at the twitter comments. See at the very bottom of that twitter page Irene posted, where it says "789 people are talking about this", click on that sentence.

Jack Letts, infamously known as “Jihadi Jack”:

Quote:
Jack Letts, who left his home in Oxfordshire to join Isis five years ago, has been stripped of his British citizenship while being held in a Syrian prison.

The move sparked a diplomatic row as Canada – where Letts qualifies for a passport through his father – accused the UK government of “offloading its responsibilities”.

The decision was one of the last made under Theresa May as prime minister and Sajid Javid as home secretary, and is understood to have been endorsed by their respective successors, Boris Johnson and Priti Patel.
Quote:
The UK’s decision was leaked to the Mail on Sunday and appeared to come as a surprise to Canada.
Quote:
International law forbids people from being rendered stateless, but British law allows the UK to strip terror suspects abroad of their citizenship if they are a dual national or able to obtain citizenship of another country.

This "coming as a surprise to Canada" is just another example of our government sleeping at the controls.

Not only was this discussed at length almost a year ago when returning ISIS inductees were a problem for any number of countries as a result of which the Harper government put legislation in place to allow rescinding of Canadian citizenship, but this specific problem was mentioned again when the U.K. began revoking what would become in total to date of over 120 U.K. citizenships. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Letts

"In October 2018, Conservative Party of Canada leader Andrew Scheer criticized the government for trying to negotiate Letts' release.[18] In doing so, he described Letts as "a known terrorist fighter" and as "British terrorist Jihadi Jack, a UK citizen, who may or may not have ever set foot in Canada".[18] In response, John Letts wrote an open letter to Scheer, sending copies to all Members of Parliament, "to challenge the misinformation that has appeared in the Canadian media recently ... Mr Scheer confidently claimed that Jack is 'a known jihadi fighter' ... If Mr Scheer has any evidence that our son is a 'known jihadi fighter' he has a duty to report this information to the Canadian and British authorities. No such evidence has ever been passed to us, or to our lawyers in the UK"[18] The letter states that the family tried to present proof of their son's innocence to the RCMP and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), but their attempts to arrange a meeting were declined under the Trudeau Government."

Trudeau, in a display of arrogant "higher road than thee" political brinksmanship, rolled back that Harper edict and has now to deal with the easily foreseen consequences. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/cit...sday-1.4163656

For our Feds to not have seen this coming is remarkable in it's naivete.

And yet it would have been so easy *not* to drop the ball on these ones.

Now they're going public with stating they are not going to press for or even provide consular assistance in this tools quest to avoid rotting in a mid eastern jail cell.

But, but, Justin …….. wasn't it "yourself" loftily stating a 'Canadian-is-a-Canadian' regardless? Golly gee Sheriff ….. are we being just a bit two faced here or what?

Classic case of hubris nibbling at someone's backside.
