Security versus secrecy: What is the public entitled to know?

Clement agreed. “I think that plays into the terrorists’ hands, making society uneasy,” he said, noting that Montreal’s police chief said last month his force was monitoring 100 people — more than the RCMP’s October estimate.


So, the Feds say they’re monitoring 90, Montreal is monitoring 100 on it’s own. I wonder if Toronto devotes any resources to the surveillance of threats emanating from the Muslim community, the GTA is home to 600,000.

Makes one wonder doesn’t it.

While I understand the need for security it also appears that our security and police services have adopted a very Rotherham like attitude.
