The primary issue there is that it would leave a person effectively stateless. This is a violation of international law. Where this may not be an issue, is where a person has citizenship in more than one country, thereby not becoming stateless. Frankly, I don't have a problem with stripping naturalized citizens who have taken up arms against us.S.15 protections are exactly what a number of pretty knowledgeable lawyers were hanging their opinions on when this was discussed at the time of the short-lived move to strip Canadian citizenship from convicted terrorists under the Harper government. And frankly I don’t see it as much of a stretch, or more importantly, that our courts would.
I also believe in handling our own trash. Stripping citizenship is an abrogation of our responsibilities to our own, both good and bad.
