Why Are We Letting a Radical Imam in Montreal Run Rings Around Us?

There's this radical preacher over in Montreal who may or may not be persuading the young'uns to up and fight for ISIS. According to a report in the Toronto Star, a Montreal father is claiming that "Muslim preacher Adil Charkaoui, a former terror suspect, or those in his entourage at the Assahaba Islamic Community Centre" are directly responsible for his teenaged daughter's radicalization; she was just picked up at the Montreal airport prior to boarding a flight bound for jihad:
“They are responsible,” said Maha’s father, Jad Zibara. “They are manipulating young people who are 16, 17, 18, 19. They are putting dark ideas in their head.” 
“I don’t know if he is at that point of sending people to Syria or in Iraq, but what I know is that the teachings he gives are extremist and radical.”
Of course, the radical imam claims that there's no radicalization--nope, none at all--going on at his mosque. And, furthermore, there's no way he could have gotten to the girl:
Reached by telephone Tuesday evening, Charkaoui said he did not know and had never met Zibara. 
“At the community centre there is a separation between the men and the women. I don’t see the women. I don’t meet them,” he said.
Meanwhile, Charkauoi, who "was detained and later subjected to restrictive conditions under a federal security certificate that was sought in 2003 because of never-proved suspicions that (he)was an Al Qaeda sleeper agent" is in the process of--what else?--"suing the federal government over his ordeal."

I bet he ends up winning, too, even if it turns out he's been the driving force behind a slew of ISIS recruits from Montreal.
