Sarah Leamon: Bill C-51 is the wrong answer to terrorist threats

Sarah Leamon: Bill C-51 is the wrong answer to terrorist threats

C51 and terrorist threats

The Canadian Incident Database recently confirmed that in the last 54 years, there have been about 1,800 terrorist threats involving Canada. A pretty jarring statistic, isn’t it? I can admit that when I first read it, I was surprised.

As a Canadian, I don’t often associate the words “Canada” and “terrorism” with one another. As peace-keeping country with an international reputation for being friendly, mild-mannered, and overly polite, Canada doesn’t really lend itself to becoming a “terror target”—and yet the statistics seem to say otherwise.

Or do they? If we break that number down, we’ll quickly discover that 1,800 threats over the course of 54 years amounts to a measly average of 33-odd threats any given calendar year. When we look at it that way, it doesn’t seem so shocking anymore.
