A Podcast Called INTREPID

Discussing and debating Canadian national security law and politics

Ep 70 Event Horizon 2019

We’re back with the first episode of 2019. Thanks for sticking with us in a brand new year. We’re using this episode as a catch-up on issues and stories we’ve been following, and things that have come up since our last update podcast. Here, we talk briefly about planned reforms of RCMP oversight; updates in the Huawei saga; the fate of the Ford anti-terrorism bill; Ralph Goodale’s December speech and the prospect of a new law of some sort on cybersecurity; the first annual report of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (now with the Prime Minister); what we’re looking for in the Peshdary terrorism case and the Huang espionage case; and some future-casting on election-related issues, with a final comment about the death threats being uttered by supporters of “Yellow Vest Canada”. Lots of doom and foreboding in this episode, but all done in good cheer.
