Canadian government has revoked the citizenship of convicted terrorist Zakaria Amara

...the mastermind behind a plot to detonate massive bombs in downtown Toronto.

A couple of prominent Canadians (and prominent CC members I imagine) won't be too happy about it:
NDP leader Tom Mulcair has said he would scrap the citizenship revocation law, and on Friday Liberal leader Justin Trudeau repeated his pledge to repeal it. "The bill creates second-class citizens," he said. "No elected official should ever have the exclusive power to revoke Canadian citizenship. Under a Liberal government there will be no two-tiered citizenship. A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian."
Yup. Love those Canadians.

So, are we going to drum him to a border and kick him out?

One way ticket to Dubai?

Drop him in a vat of H2 SO4?

Ay there's the rub-all fine and good to say Go Back From Whence You Came but since he's a Jordanian citizen they'll have to be convinced to take him back-some diplomat will have to do all the legwork to prove where he was born, who his parents were, where he was educated, etc., etc. to the Jordanian's satisfaction.

We posted about this a while back re: some Indian born ratbag now residing in a Canadian prison-he never obtained Canadian citizenship but is India obligated to take him back?

You can't just put someone on a plane and send them somewhere that's not how it works.

Guess that must mean mulcair is giving up his dual citizenship then. Afterall a Canadian is a Canadian.
