Foreign funds promoting 'extreme Islamic jihadist' views in Canada, national security advisor says
by Stewart Bell
Money is coming into Canada to promote extremist ideology and much of it is going to religious institutions, the prime minister's national security adviser testified at a hearing Monday on the government's counter-terrorism bill.
Asked by Senate national security committee chairman Daniel Lang about millions of dollars allegedly coming from Gulf states "in respect to the extreme Islamic jihadist interpretation of the Qur'an," Richard Fadden said it was a problem.
"I think it's fair to say, without commenting on the particular country of origin, there are monies coming into this country which are advocating this kind of approach to life," responded Fadden, who works in the Privy Council Office.
