Canadian military personnel

Abu Huzaifa al-Kanadi is a self-described member of the Islamic State. He left Toronto in 2014 to join them before eventually returning back in 2016. It is unknown as to what his real name is, as he agreed to not reveal it on CBC.[1] He sparked outrage after admitting on The New York Times that he murdered people while fighting for them.[2] Numerous conservatives, such as Candice Bergen, called for action against him, as well as criticizing Justin Trudeau and the liberal government for refusing to arrest him.[3]
