Canadian security agencies under strain while threats have ‘seldom been so high,’ former senior officials say

TORONTO — Two former high-ranking officials have written a joint letter warning that Canada’s national security agencies are under strain and urging the Liberal government to address the issue as a top priority.

Luc Portelance and Ray Boisvert wrote that the new government’s commitment to increasing the accountability of the security community must also address gaps in capabilities at a time that threats have “seldom been so high.”


PinkpanthersellersThreats what threats? CSIS and the RCMP refuse to acknowledge Muslim terrorism exists; The RCMP and CSIS won’t update Canadians about the number of radicals they’re tracking. It could be decreasing. It could be increasing. They won’t say.

I say cut their budgets, they obviously have things well in hand.
