More Good Work from The Macdonald Laurier Institute

The MLI ( headed by my friend Brian Lee Crowley) has released about rdicalization behind bars. This is a serious problem in other countries and we should discuss it , before it is a huge problem here.  It is good that some Canadians understand the jihadi threat.

More Canadians have been imprisoned on terrorism-related crimes in the past 18 months than used to face such charges over decades. Since October, 2008, 14 Canadians have been found guilty of terror-related acts. Some, like Momin Khawaja, Said Namouh, and Zakaria Amara are likely to spend decades behind bars. If, during that time, they convince even one other inmate to adopt their violent ideology, would their original convictions still be touted as a resounding counterterrorism success? To ensure that getting one terrorist off Canada’s streets does not inadvertently breed two others, we need a counterterrorism strategy that includes our prison policy.
