Canada's Immigration Minister is speaking to questions around the idea of revoking a person's citizenship if they commit a terrorist act.
Jason Kenney wants to look into legislation that could take a dual national's citizenship away.
Speaking with CKNW's Sean Leslie, Kenney was asked about due process -- and how it could be determined whether a Canadian is facing some "trumped up" charges somewhere else.
Kenney says those questions could be addressed through legislative amendments to the Citizenship Act.
"I think the answer is that obviously there would have to be a relatively high threshold for the revocation of citizenship on such grounds, there would have to be robust procedural safeguards and indeed, the revocation of anyone's citizenship is subject to review by our courts."
Kenney says the alleged involvement of a Canadian in a bus bombing in Bulgaria shows the need for this kind of legislation.
