It seems that some Canadians — at least the ones represented by the Liberal Party — are ready to put 9/11 behind them, that is, pretend terrorism doesn’t exist, as the House of Commons yesterday voted to allow two anti-terror laws to expire. It hasn’t even been a year since the arrests of Canadian Islamists planning to detonate 3 tons of ammonium nitrate in and around Toronto. Ah, but the planned mass murder never came about. Unfortunately, because of human nature — taking the path of least resistance — terrorist intent to slash our supple Western throats is perceived as somehow different than if our throats were actually slashed. Too late! When you notice the threat, all your blood has run out. Never mind the bloodshed happening “over there.” My, how the grass is greener at home.
