(The UN insists countries have a legal obligation to repatriate terrorists who go abroad to fight against national interests or allies)
CBC, a.k.a The “Communist Broadbasting Corporation”, or the “Caliphate Broadcasting Corporation”, is a government funded “news” organization. It receives about $1.5 billion annually to spew out anti-Canadian stories. Taxpayers don’t get a say in the matter.

In all fairness, here the CBC is ”quoting” the UN Rapporteur, and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. However, there is nothing in the way of critical analysis or challenge to the claims. Some hard questions would be nice.

Obvious question: Why? If citizens leave to take up arms in foreign conflict, then it is their problem. Canada is not obligated to bail them out.
Not being equipped to put them on trial actually makes sense. The logistics here are enormous. How do you gather evidence, depose witnesses, and run a trial, based on events happening around the world?
Also, there is a small issue of ”jurisdiction”. Who has it, and how will that be settled?
Some mental gymnastics here. Callamard shrugs off so-called Canadians fighting for a group with no international legitimacy, yet says it’s wrong they are detained by people with no international legitimacy.
Okay, if a group is unable to conduct trials there, why should Canada go through the time and expense of doing it here? Logistics. Also, we wouldn’t have jurisdiction in events that happen overseas.
They can be sentenced to death. Who cares? These are not tourists on vacation who got mixed up in something bad. These are traitors who turned against out country.
This is a nice surprise. CBC actually asking this very important question: how do you deal with the logistics of actually conducting a trial?
(a) All countries have the legal and technical capacity? Great, then let’s try them overseas where these crimes happened. Pull their citizenships, seize their assets, and call it a day.
(b) Yes, you are denying the complexity of an investigation. How do you properly investigate a war zone going on halfway across the world?
(c) She conflates ”prosecuting” the Nazis with ”rescuing” ISIS fighters. Yes, ISIS fighters would probably prefer to be tried in Canada. But remember, Callamard said that all nations have the capacity to hold trials.
(d) Canada may be better placed, but again, why should we? Public funds would be far better used spent on our own people, rather than repatriating traitors and terrorists (just so we can try them and lock them up).
(a) Another surprisingly good question from the CBC. Yes, there is widespread public opposition to bringing ISIS fighters back.
(b) Callamard focuses on the righter of ISIS terrorists, but seems uninterested in the danger that they pose to Canadians. Further, she shows little concern for the drain in public resources in doing so. She just pays lip service to this.
(c) Callamard remarks that no western government is interested in doing this. Likewise, they also have their respective public to deal with.
(d) Western population are (rightly) not very interested in the well being of people who leave their countries to take up arms in foreign conflicts. When these traitors and terrorists come calling for help, there is understandably no sympathy. They are authors of their own misfortunes.
(e) Do the right thing in front of historians? Now we get a straight answer. This is about virtue signalling.
Compared to most interviews CBC does, this actually wasn’t ”that” bad. At least a few good questions were raised.
Not content with the rights of illegal migrants, the UN special rapporteur is also very concerned with the well being of terrorists who fight abroad.
It is because of nonsense like this, that opinion pieces to leave the UN altogether are published.
Nationalists believe that a government should look after its own people first and foremost. We choose leader to represent ourselves.
Globalists believe that national well being should be sacrificed in the name of ”the greater good” regardless of whether they have any sort of democratic mandate. As such, they are really accountable to no one.
This is just another UN call for nations to sacrifice their well being in the name of ”being view positively in history”.
