Air In­dia ter­ror­ist was for­eign-born

RE: Time to end the myth of Cana­dian ex­cep­tion­al­ism (Feb. 16)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

In this ar­ti­cle, the au­thor wrote: “In Cana­dian his­tory none of the ter­ror­ist at­tacks were per­pe­trated by for­eign born na­tion­als.”

Just the day be­fore, Feb. 15, The Spec­ta­tor re­ported on the re­lease from a half­way house of In­der­jit Singh Reyat. Reyat was con­victed of man­slaugh­ter and per­jury for his guilt in per­pe­trat­ing Canada’s worst ter­ror­ist at­tack, the 1985 Air In­dia bomb­ing in which 329 peo­ple were killed, in­clud­ing 268 Cana­dian cit­i­zens.

In­der­jit Singh Reyat is a for­eign born na­tional, hav­ing been born in In­dia. Kevin Love, Hamil­ton
