The viper in our bosom

Two soldiers dead within a week, killed by lone wolves professing to be inspired by jihadist Islamism. Many Canadians are stunned that other Canadians, people born and raised in Canada, could commit these cruel, heartless and destructive acts against our country. And yet treason and treachery are hardly new ideas. They have a long history in every society, including western democracies blessed with freedom and the rule of law. In my latest column for the Ottawa Citizen and other Postmedia papers I talk about the history of such betrayals and the unpleasant work we need to do to protect ourselves.
