Conservatives always have this knee jerk reaction to things, ignoring every legal and constitutional reality.  There is no affair.  He's a Canadian citizen with the constitutional right to enter and leave Canada, and it's that simple.

There is an affair because unfortunately the Liberals reversed the Conservative law that said dual-citizens could be stripped of citizenship if convicted of terrorism offenses, a law the UK also has and May's government used.  "A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian", but clearly that's not the case with Jihadi Jack, who decided to become an enemy of the state for a group bent on destroying Canada.

Stripping citizenship is still rare in those cases but can be done (if we still had the law), as seen in the UK.

I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
