TORONTO, ON, Oct. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - MNP LLP has subject matter experts available for media interviews to discuss Bill C-44, the federal government's Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act.
"We applaud the efforts of the federal government and Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney to protect Canadians from terrorism," said Matthew McGuire, national leader of MNP's anti-money laundering services line, part of the firm's Investigative and Forensic Services practice. "The recent events in Ottawa and Saint-Jean-sur-Richilieu reinforce the need for governments at all levels to take necessary measures to protect Canadians from such threats."
"The introduction of The Protection of Canada from Terrorist Act is needed in Canada," said Christine Duhaime, a counter-terrorism and financial crime lawyer, and senior consultant with MNP. "We seem to have proportionately more homegrown terrorists in this country that are more difficult to detect and protect against. We need legislation that allows us to focus on curbing terrorist financing and containing all terrorist threats."
Our team will be available on October 27th and 28th for media interviews on the implications of the new legislation. MNP is able to provide timely, high level commentary and analysis to journalists and editors across the province. We can accommodate requests for print and broadcast interviews as required.
