Canada’s terrorism financing watchdog is referring a rising number of cases to security agencies every year, it said Thursday.
The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada revealed to the Star that it passed along 337 terrorism financing-related files to law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the year ended March 2015.
That’s a 44 per cent increase over the 234 it referred in 2013-2014, and more than double the 157 reported for the year-ended March 2013. The previously undisclosed 2014-2015 figures are part of FINTRAC’s yet-to-be tabled annual report to Parliament.
A 44% increase? Boy it’s good that Justin is bringing in 25,000 potential donors, that’s gonna be a hard number to top next year.
