The Government of Canada is constantly working to keep Canadian families and communities safe from violent extremism. Preventing radicalization to violence helps stop tragedies before they occur. To assist these efforts, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Karen McCrimmon, today announced funding to the John Howard Society of Ottawa to disengage at-risk individuals in the eastern Ontario region from extremist-based violence.

Believe it or not, daily threats faced by Western populations in the 21st century are at some of the lowest in all history. In developed countries in particular, external threats are something that we rarely consider in everyday life. Threats here are usually considered to be things such as crime, illness, or accidents; and when external threats are brought to the public’s attention it’s usually in the form of terror attacks, political change, or economic forces that may disrupt our day to day life.

Ottawa will spend $35 million over five years to fund programs that reach out to vulnerable people open to radicalization in a bid to prevent terror attacks in Canada.

The federal government is looking to establish national centers for de-radicalization across Canada to fight extremism.

Last week’s events in Strathroy, Ontario, is a good example of why Canada may need to establish ways of preventing radicalization.

Canadians should take warning from the events in Paris on 13 November. Too often, Canadians dismiss terrorist threats, warnings and close calls with the usual attitude that “Canada is not important enough to attract terrorism,” or that “it can’t happen here.” That kind of thinking is dangerous. It can happen here, and it has happened here.

Human rights and liberal values are under threat in a small, little-known country most people would be hard-pressed to find on a map. Following the radical vision of Usama bin Laden and his followers, Brunei Darussalam became an Islamic state under strict Sharia law this past week, with punishments of death by stoning for ­adulterers and severing of limbs for thieves.

Clive Addy: First, might I thank you, Senator, for accepting to do this interview. A few years ago, terrorism was seen as something that happened elsewhere and was performed on and by people other than Canadians. How times have changed! Today and most recently, Canadians have witnessed fellow citizens being involved in terrorist activity, funding and support around the world.

When al-Qaeda, or what it’s become, is publishing propaganda and chillingly accurate instructions to incite radicalized or radically-prone young Muslims living in the West to “build bombs in your mother’s kitchen”, it’s time to confront the reality that a new front on the Islamist war has opened up and it’s in our own backyard.

Canada and her European allies had best beware of the Lebanon-based ­terrorist group Hezbollah as UN negotiations to halt Iran’s military nuclear program continue in stalemate, and tensions rise with Israel and the U.S.

On July 11, the eve of the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers that sparked the recent conflict, Ali Larijani, the head of Iran’s National Security Council, threatened European Union negotiators that Iran would harm Western interests if its nuclear program was referred back to the UN Security Council.
