At the end of 2015, 60 of what Canada calls "extremist travelers" had returned to the country, according to the annual report released on Thursday by Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. Goodale has overall responsibility for law enforcement, including the RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
