Harper calls for review of post-9/11 security measures

Ottawa looking to address security gaps, reduce costs


Prime Minister Stephen Harper has called for an extensive strategic review of Canada’s public safety policies since 9/11. The review will focus on improving air travel security, critical infrastructure protection, and foreign intelligence gathering, while minimizing the costs involved with each. Documents obtained by the National Post detail Harper’s list of “mandate priorities,” which also asks the Public Safety minister to produce a National Security Statement explaining changing security threats to the public.

Harper calls for review of post-9/11 security measures

  1. Good, fast, or cheap. Pick two.

    Harper's hoping for good and cheap.

    Don't plan to travel anywhere quickly.

  2. Maybe the PM should also ask for a review into 9/11 and the reasons we are in Afghanistan. Security in the world seemed to take a very weird left turn since those buildings suspiciously fell in NY. Strange.

  3. I have an idea.

    If Harper is going to conduct a strategic review of Canada's public safety policies, he's probably going to need some help. A suggestion that might work is to find some way to gather all of Canada's elected officials in one place and have them discuss this issue. If everybody was able to contribute ideas, a better solution could be found.

    I seem to recall, back in the days of yore, when such a place existed – I believe it was called "Parliament" or something like that.

  4. Good, If you have nothing to hide, you have no problem with extra security. I for one, am surprised how easy it is to fly and go across the border. As long as we don't have to pay for it. Good!!
