Harper announces extra money for RCMP, border services

Money will help the Mounties conduct criminal investigations related to terrorism, PM says


MONTREAL – Prime Minister Stephen Harper says the federal government will provide substantial resources to the RCMP and the Canada Border Services Agency in the fight against terrorism.

Harper announced in Montreal today that the RCMP will receive $150.4 million in new money over five years, beginning in 2015-16, and $46.8 million a year after.

The money will go to help the Mounties conduct criminal investigations related to terrorism.

The border-services agency will get $5.4 million over five years and $1.1 million annually in subsequent years, with some of the funds earmarked for identifying high-risk travellers.

Harper says violent jihadism is not a future possibility but is a reality in Canada and around the world.

He was speaking at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, where 10 youths were arrested last weekend after being suspected of wanting to leave Canada to go join jihadist groups.

  1. White supremacy groups are also a problem in Canada. (I’m White) If not a bigger problem. Ah but no one cares about that do they?

    One should look up a man by the name Jason Devine and see what the white supremacists did to him in his own home in front of his family.

    How these same white supremacists pretty much get away with that kind of crap all the time. How Jason Devine isn’t their only victim.

    And they let these scumbags march down the streets haha. Ridiculous I say. We don’t let Jihadists and ISIS flags to be flown down Canadian streets in Marches, why do we allow the Swastika to be paraded down our Canadian Streets?

    Don’t get me wrong I’m just pointing out the irony and the hypocrisy.

    People should look up the Reformacon link to Neo Nazism.

    as for the resources to RCMP and Canadian Border Services? Pocket change!

    Where have all our Tax Dollars gone?

    Certainly not to the National Debt! Where is ALL THE MONEY? Why is no one asking this!>?
