The three dots are so that it fits nicely into the "preview"
Unfortunately for Trudeau it appears he did not do his due diligence. It is common knowledge that wahabi sunni Islam is an extreme movement. In Saudi Arabia where they hold power the treatment of women is abhorrent. The wahabi attitude towards other religions and sects of Islam is nothing short of barbaric and cultural genocide. Trudeau demonstrated shocking naivete by attending this mosque. Trudeau's actions are equivalent to attending a Nazi rally for most Jews. At the very least he must apologise and admit his mistake. As it is he has almost certainly lost the Jewish vote.
Yeah, the same mosque where Jason Kenney made a speech too. Give it a rest.
Your leader is inexperienced and out of his league. His handlers woefully incapable of handling complex issues, I'm sorry. This is what happens when a political party relies on "saviours" instead of well thought-out policy or capable candidates. I doubt Kenny made a speech there but, I would welcome some proof if you have any.
Albert you definitely do NOT speak for all Jewish voters, including myself!
Uh could Albert Goodwin be a concern troll???
When the National Post is critiquing the Conservative attack on Justin Trudeau - you know it has gotten to a low point. I agree with the point of the article, if there were legitimate security concerns with that mosque then the government failed to address the issue. Especially, since Trudeau visited this mosque three years ago. It seems the Conservatives will throw anything at Justin Trudeau and see if it sticks. So the Conservative attack on Justin Trudeau is that he is way over his head, wants to give children access to pot and sympathizes with Islamic extremists?
National security matters by their very nature are secretive. Most likely CSCE and CSIS, the Montreal police and QPP have acted in some manner but, their activities have not nor should be made public. The fact of the matter is we do not know nor should we if the Government "failed to address" security issues. The lack of attack does suggest some action was taken. I don't know the details but, if the mosque is known or was known for its radical Islamic activities or preaching I think a case could be made for Trudeau to apologise or at least admit his staff failed to conduct proper research into the mosque. The larger question is why and how people with radical Islamic theologies and politics are allowed into Canada. Canada has never been at more risk than now from radicalised Canadians who return home intent on violence. Canada needs immigrants but, we don't need people who violently oppose democratic and human values-there are plenty of refugees and other poor people more than willing to be "good Canadians" if they get the chance.
