Canadian Man Arrested After Texting Staff ‘Blow Away’ Competition

Canadian Man Arrested After Texting Staff ‘Blow Away’ Competition

A  Moroccan-born Canadian businessman is suing the Quebec provincial police force for $100,000 after being deemed a terror suspect for texting his sales staff.

Last month, in preparation for a trade show in New York City, Saad Allami, sales manager at a Canadian telecommunications firm, sent a text to his sales staff saying that he intended to “blow away” the competition, according to The Daily Mail.

Allami alleges that he was arrested with no prior warning and detained for more than a day while Quebec authorities searched his house. Some of Allami’s coworkers were also reportedly detained at the Canada-U.S. border and were questioned because of their ties to the suspected terrorist.  Following the man’s arrest, police officers stormed his home and informed his wife that they believed he was a terrorist.  A search of Quebec’s courthouse database found no references to him and Allami was released with no charges.

According to, Allami says he has no links to terrorist organizations or the Islamic movement and that police acted without any evidence or research. He is seeking $100,000 in damages from the Quebec provincial police force, one of its sergeants and the provincial government.
