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.
