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.

The UK simply demonstrated a dereliction of duty. I suppose you'll see more of that under Boris.
