How does a nation accept it when the beheading is whitewashed and the religion not once identified by your leader???
PM Trudeau statement
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the death of Canadian John Ridsdel:
“I am outraged by the news that a Canadian citizen, John Ridsdel, held hostage in the Philippines since September 21, 2015, has been killed at the hands of his captors.
“Canada condemns without reservation the brutality of the hostage-takers, and this unnecessary death. This was an act of cold-blooded murder and responsibility rests squarely with the terrorist group who took him hostage.
“The Government of Canada is committed to working with the Government of Philippines and international partners to pursue those responsible for this heinous act and bring them to justice.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada and all Canadians, I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Ridsdel. They have endured a terrible ordeal, and this is a devastating moment for all of them. Our thoughts are with them as they come to terms with this loss, and I would ask that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time.
“The Government of Canada’s first priority is the safety and security of its citizens. The Government of Canada will not comment or release any information which may compromise ongoing efforts or endanger the safety of the remaining hostages.”

'Captors' - um -ok
He is like all the other PC leaders refusing to identify the real problem in that these are islamic terrorists in a majority islamic country. He calls them terrorists only and hostage takers. Yes that would be a terrible ordeal knowing that your loved one suffered decapitation before he died Mr Trudeau!

I am in Gensan now on Mindanao. I lived in Davao for a while several years ago. What city did you live in? I know there are certain parts that I am not allowed to even think about going, but Gensan seems fine. I have been told to stay away from the mountains, though.
I did go stay on Samal for a few days several years ago. I believe that is where these hostages were taken.
I am curious what city you lived in that ISIS was already there.

If it were my choice, it would be time for JTF2 to get some work in.

And yet another fine example of the religion of peace.
