Canadians have no right to travel to regions of the world controlled by terrorist groups, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday in promising a broader legal crackdown on what he called “terror tourism.”
The policy promise, made during a campaign stop Sunday in Ottawa, would expand federal laws that make it a crime for Canadians to head overseas to fight alongside groups officially identified by the federal government as a terrorist organization.
“There is absolutely no right in this country to travel to an area under the governance of terrorists. That is not a human right,” Harper said.
“We’re not under any illusion here what just about everybody going to an area like that is doing. That’s the reason to pursue this particular policy that’s been used in other countries.”
