  1. The reason no terrorism charges laid in my opinion is to keep Justin Trudeau from having to keep his promise to compensate anyone who is hurt by an immigrant terrorist .

  2. No terrorism charges laid simply means there was no terrorism on Trudeau’s watch ! Isn’t Trudeau wonderful. Don’t believe the RCMP about the vast complexities of a terrorism charge ! That total bull, simply an excuse to avoided such a charge. If the RCMP leader cannot lay such a charge then find someone who can and remove the current leader.

  3. Junior, Trudeau, obviously, is intent upon stamping his territory, Canada, with the sharia-compliant laws and society he envisioned when he committed the hoax of running for Prime Minister.
    God help us. God help Canada.
