Canadians Look to Expand Counter-Terror Capabilities

Canadians look to expand counter-terror capabilities through increased funding of the Kanishka Project.

“The Kanishka Project is an important part of our Government’s strategy to counter terrorism. It will help us create or improve concrete tools, programs, and policies that will assist in keeping Canadians safe,” said Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Steven Blaney.

“Canada is not immune to terrorism and violent extremism, and our Government will continue to take every possible action to address these global threats,” said Parliamentary Secretary James. “By helping us to increase awareness and develop the most effective ways to address terrorism, the Kanishka Project will enable us to continue to build stronger, more resilient communities.”

On June 23, 2011, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the Kanishka Project, an initiative named after the Air India Flight 182 plane that was bombed on June 23, 1985, killing 329 people, most of them Canadians.
