Enjoy your stay, we'll be giving you accommodations for 30 to 60 years.

EDMONTON — An Alberta judge has granted an extradition order for a man facing terrorism charges in the United States after he allegedly helped pay for his relatives to travel to Syria.

Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi, 33, is accused of being part of a January 2014 jewelry store robbery in Edmonton to fund the Syrian trips.

“I am satisfied that the test … is met,” Court of Queen’s Bench Justice John Little said Thursday. “And I am satisfied that Mr. Abdullahi is the person sought by the United States.

“I therefore order his committal into custody to await surrender.”

Abdullahi shouted in court after the decision came down, but his comments couldn’t be heard in the public gallery. His family and friends were visibly distraught.

1 He should stay in Canada. He could get a job as Justine Trudeau's make-up guy and glue on all his future fake eyebrows.

2 "His family and friends were visibly distraught."
That's one of those understatements, innit?
