Finance committee  â€”the banks are not the major part of the problem here.

The cyber-threat is the single greatest threat to our national security, to our democracy, our social harmony, and our prosperity today. I think

Public Safety committee  The challenge is always, as my colleagues also pointed out, in reassuring Canadians that the activity in which the service engages is compliant with the Constitution and the rule of law.

Public Safety committee  We also want to consider that every time one of these committees makes a request to the agencies, given there's no new money to the agencies to support all these new requests, this is effectively a cut in the budgets to the agencies themselves. We want to make sure that committee

Dr. Christian Leuprecht

Public Safety committee  Mr. Chair, I think we need to ask ourselves why we are here. I think one of the challenges we've had is that we hear a lot of tactics, but we don't hear a lot about what the strategy is and what the ultimate rationale is behind this. The rationale is that, as Canadians, we've lon
