This is probably in response to the whole Omar Khadr deal.
I'd agree with this.
If you want to fight against us, then you have no right to call yourself Canadian.

The resolution states that any Canadian citizen, "whether by birth or by naturalized grant of Canadian citizenship or by claim of landed immigrant or refugee status" who "takes up arms against the Canadian Forces or the Forces of Canada’s Allies automatically invalidates his or her Canadian citizenship or claim" and "should be tried for high treason under the Canadian Criminal Code" if they return to Canada.
This is a pretty vague sweeping power and bothers me as well.
I would like some clarification on said allies. Does this mean a Canadian Palestinian who gets in a fight with IDF in Gaza or west bank would forfeit their citizenship and be arrested upon return to Canada.
What citizenry would a person have once disowned? Outcast being of earth with no rights?
It doesn't seem to be very clear on the jurisdiction as well. It states that you would be subject to arrest upon returning but if it took place here you would probably get arrested immediately.
It seems like Canada's Patriot act "Your either with us or with the terrorists". Not much of a problem unless your Gov decides to participate in actions that are misleading and not what we are being told in the media status quo.
It would be interesting to see how this would apply to a situation like the Oka native uprising.

It is illegal for a country to render a person or persons stateless, no matter what, under the UN Charter which Canada is obviously a signatory.
So, if the person concerned is a Canadian citizen and only a Canadian citizen, you cannot strip their citizenship.
Also, I thought I'd comment on this as it is mentioned in the OP. The Bill of Rights 1689 does not confer the universal right to bear arms. It states you have the right to bear arms as allowed by law. A big difference.
