I'm sorry, but let me go to my second part of the question.
You become aware of terrorist propaganda being launched at Canadians, but it's by a Canadian on foreign soil. How do you interpret the act as being able to respond to that? Do you have to let it go or can you respond?

In the less than a minute and a half that I have left, I am struggling between which questions to ask. I will ask this.
Mr. Day and Mr. Newark, you talked about the barriers of intelligence-gathering evidence and the struggle that we currently have and the challenges it presents to prosecute criminals to begin with, including returning ISIS terrorists.
How would you suggest we deal with this? They are very real concerns and there are limitations currently on protecting Canadians and holding those who are criminal and returning to do harm to us accountable. How do we fix that?

Thank you. I have two questions that I'm sure will consume the entirety of the five minutes.
The question that I have for you, Mr. Day, is in regard to the turf battles. Do you believe that Bill C-59creates an environment that will mitigate these turf battles, and if not, what do you suggest?
Mr. Newark, my question for you falls along the line of our knowing what our allies are doing around the world. We've seen the history book play out in advance for them with attacks that have happened in places like the Brussels Jewish museum. We've seen what's happened in Europe in 2014 and 2016. With all the attacks that have happened, Belgium expanded the definition of what constitutes a terrorist offence, and lowered its threshold for conviction in line with the 2014 UN Security Council Resolution 2178 and the 2016 European Union directive on terrorism.
In fact, one of these returnees was identified in Belgium. Once one of these returnees is identified by the Belgium authorities, they are systematically arrested and presented to an investigating judge. In Germany now, in every case of a returning foreign terrorist fighter, the prosecuting authority opens a criminal investigation immediately.
What are we doing so terribly wrong on this issue of returning foreign fighters that could or should be included in this bill?
I'll let Mr. Day go first, and then Mr. Newark, please.
