In Committee from the House of Commons

Public Safety and National Security – November 24, 2014

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney responds to questions about the federal government’s anti-terrorism bill that would increase the powers of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. Bill C-44 would allow the spy agency to track suspected terrorists internationally, share information with other countries and give greater protection to confidential sources. It would also introduce technical amendments to permit the government to revoke the Canadian citizenship of dual citizens convicted of terrorism. Also appearing are CSIS director Michel Coulombe, deputy minister François Guimont and senior Citizenship and Immigration official Nicole Girard. (November 24, 2014)
