Ep 89 A Surplus of Headlines

Stephanie and Craig pause on the guest front, and play catch up on news in the Canadian national security space. Among the topics: national security in the 2019 federal budget; issues arising in the senate proceedings on bill C-59 (including the terrorism speech crime; no fly list appeals and special advocates); recent reporting on “dangerous” Canadians; the now second set of amendments to the 2018 terror threat to Canada report; and a peculiar cyber crime investigation involving both the RCMP and the CRTC. This episode comes as we have launched A Blog Called INTREPID — our effort to add written analysis to this Canadian national security discussion and debate project. Check out the new blog, and welcome our INTREPID-alumi-now-Founding-Editors, at www.intrepidpodcast.com. Hope all this is useful. We’re peddling hard!
