According to media, on March 29, 2017, it was discovered that four employees at the Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport have been under investigation by the Montreal police, and some of them with access to restricted areas were found to have showed signs of radicalization. TVA said a police investigation found the workers had watched pro-ISIS propaganda and that one possessed books on military-calibre assault weapons;
The Journal de Montréal reports that of the four employees, at least two who still work at the airport have shown signs of radicalization that police investigators consider worrisome - some visited pro-ISIL websites, published propaganda on social media and consulted documents explaining how to make homemade explosives. One employee, who had access to the airport’s runways and airplanes, commented on the November 2015 Paris attacks that killed 130 people.
The network reported one of the employees has since left the airport, while the other was reassigned away from secured areas.
The government insists that these radicalized individuals are no longer a danger to the citizens of Montreal or travelers, yet two of these individuals are still working in the Montreal airport.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to take immediate action and remove the two radicalised individuals from their jobs so they do not become a threat to the lives of Canadians. They should be placed under a peace bond and be under constant supervision of police authorities.
