More
That was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not really expressing any enthusiasm for trying to secure the release of “Jihadi” Jack Letts. Letts has Canadian citizenship as well as British, but has spent his life in the U-K. Now, the UK has revoked his citizenship for that country - and because international law prohibits countries from making people ‘stateless’, that means Canada can’t follow suit. So as one insider at the UK government describes it, Jihadi Jack is “Canada’s problem now”. He...
