Police and spy agency chiefs testify before Senate committee

The heads of Canada’s national police force the RCMP, the spy agency CSIS, and the electronics gathering agency CSE testified Monday (April 20) at a hearing of the Senate’s National Security and Defence Committee examining the Canadian government’s proposed, and controversial, anti-terrorism act, Bill C-51.

All three outlined their respective roles, and all underlined the serious terrorist threat that faced Canada.
