With Canadians being blamed for recent terrorist attacks in Bulgaria and Algeria, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has suggested new legislation may be needed to revoke the citizenship of dual nationals who commit terrorism.
Mr. Kenney told reporters Wednesday he wanted to discuss the issue with Conservative MP Devinder Shory, who has tabled a private members bill proposing that Canadians who commit acts of war against Canada should lose their citizenship.
The minister said he wanted to look into broadening the scope of Mr. Shorys bill to include Canadians who commit acts of terrorism. The bill, C-425, applies only to Canadians who are also citizens of a second country.

Jason Kenny is probably the best immigration minister Canada has had since the 1950’s. He’s done so much in just 8 years, that couldn’t be accomplished in 50.
If they engage in acts of terror against Canada the solution is NOT to strip them of their Canadian citizenship. It is to hang them in a Canadian public square on Saturday afternoon with free beer afterwards for the onlookers.
let’s end dual citizenship altogether. no dual loyalties.
Well, Miss Regt, :)
You gotta start somewhere and sending them home, after a stiff jail sentence is definitely a start. We’re ahead of you, of what needs to be done.
