Ontario PCs Will Table Bill to Strip Returning Islamist Terrorists of License, Benefits
Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government will table a bill next week that strips returning terrorists of their driver’s licenses and benefits, Premier Doug Ford and MP Dave Smith confirmed on Twitter
“If you leave Canada to go fight for ISIS, you should not be welcomed back with open arms.
