How Worried Should Canadians be About Terrorism

Upcoming Lunch and Learn

In the post 9/11 era, the topic of terrorism resonates like never before.  The attacks in New York and Washington are seared into our memories, and brought terrorism to the fore of our consciousness.  Since that fateful morning, acts of terrorism seem to increase daily, and, in a some countries are all too frequent. 

Canada is not immune to the threat of terrorism and has witnessed a number of incidents, both foiled and successful over the past 20 years.  But how significant is the terrorist threat?  How does it rank among other threats to national security and public safety?  How much money and how many people should we devote to combating it?

This presentation will be of great interest to anyone involved in national security or who works in an intelligence capacity.

Speaker: Phil Gurski

Former senior strategist analyst at CSIS and CSE and also the author of five books on terrorism, Phil Gurski explores past Canadian involvement with terrorism, the current position and where the country is headed on such matters.
