OPP, TPS. RCMP. All operate with one eye on their budgets and one eye on “low hanging fruit”. It would take too much effort and honest investigative work to track down this funding. Which country do you think is at the most risk when such funding of terrorism activities is successful?
Senator Daniel Lang, who led a National Security and Defence Committee study into the terrorism threat in Canada, said police and justice officials have received almost 700 reliable reports of suspected terrorist financing in the country during recent years.
“And that information, the way I understand it, was brought to the attention of the RCMP, and we have had I believe one charge since 2001,” Lang said. “The question that has to be asked is if we have the information, and credible information obviously, there is terrorist financing going on in this country … why aren’t there any charges brought forward?”
