Saad Gaya nearly lost his Canadian citizenship under the Harper administration, this week the convicted terrorist was granted day parole for the next 6 months.
Gaya was arrested back in 2006 after unloading a delivery truck filled with explosive materials. Authorities believed he was a member of the ‘Toronto 18’ and was sentenced to 12 years in prison which was eventually increased by appeal to 18 years.
On Wednesday Gaya was denied full parole but will instead be granted a day pass. The former McMaster student will be able to attend school and work in the community as long as he returns home to a residential facility every night.
As a condition of the parole Gaya cannot use a computer or have access to the internet.
