In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence - March 9, 2015 - Part 1

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney discusses Bill C-44, the Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act. The government had intended to introduce the legislation on October 22, the day of the attacks at the National War Memorial and on Parliament Hill. Among the proposed measures is the clarification of CSIS' authority to investigate and track suspected terrorists outside of Canada. The bill also contains technical amendments that would speed up the implementation of provisions that received royal assent last June, allowing the government to revoke the Canadian citizenship of dual citizens convicted of terrorism, high treason, treason or spying offences.
Also appearing are Michel Coulombe, director of CSIS; François Guimont, deputy public safety minister; Nathalie Benoit, general counsel for CSIS; and Nicole Girard, director general of the citizenship and multiculturalism branch at Citizenship and Immigration Canada. (March 9, 2015)
