When Justin Trudeau was swarmed the other day on Toronto a woman shouted at him and asked him about the 60 returned jihadists roaming about in Canada.
Trudeau apparently winked and said “they came under Harper”
From Toronto Sun:
In a video posted to social media, the woman shouts her concerns at Trudeau. The PM rather surprisingly turns away from his fans and, without breaking a smile and bordering on a wink, tells her: “They came under Harper.”
Is this true? Yes, when it comes to the 60 count. But as I wrote in a recent column, Goodale in his very statement referenced CSIS testimony that he admitted was many months old – over two years old in fact. Goodale’s office insists the numbers remain the same but a 2017 public threat report expected in the coming weeks will be the true test.
That original 60 number comes from the December 2015 year-end numbers. While a handful of these 60 may have possibly come in after November 4 – when Trudeau became PM – most of them surely came in under Harper’s watch.
