Monsef case raises security concerns

Canadians are still left wondering about key details in the Maryam Monsef controversy.

Unanswered questions go beyond the details of Monsef’s early life in Iran and Afghanistan.

When Monsef was selected as a Liberal candidate in Peterborough, when she was elected to Parliament and again, when she was appointed to cabinet, she would have been screened and vetted.

So her past was scrutinized by her party, the government and Canada’s intelligence agency, CSIS.

Obtaining security clearance from the government is no trivial process.
