Ikar Mao of Guelph, Ont. was charged by the RCMP with participation in the activity of a terrorist group and leaving Canada to participate in a terrorist group.
Canada has often taken a soft approach to terrorists, especially when it comes to Canadians who travel abroad to fight for ISIS. The government estimates 60 ISIS fighters have been allowed to freely enter back into the country.
True North’s Anthony Furey hopes the case of Ikar Mao is a sign that the government is finally taking the threat of terrorism seriously.
