The investigation continues into the Aaron Driver jihadi terror case in Canada. Investigators are searching for clues about where Driver — who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State — learned his bomb-making techniques, clues that could potentially lead to information about other jihadis, and even “criminal charges against those who disseminate bomb-making information….Tracking the signatures of bomb-makers, and maintaining a database of them, was just one of the roles of the Canadian Bomb Data Centre” (CBDC) which was shut down when “an external panel of law enforcement advisers from across Canada ranked it of lower importance to police operations.”
In other words, it wasn’t deemed worthy to be included in the budget. But now, the Calgary Police Commission is tabling a resolution to reopen the CBDC. The resolution states that Governments should “amplify, rather than diminish, efforts in combating terrorism globally.”
In looking at the validity about budgetary constraints in the closing of the CBDC, consider this: in an article from the usually liberal-friendly Huffington Post, Trudeau’s lavish spending during his first 100 days as Prime Minister was reported to be 5.3 billion dollars, “of which slightly less than a billion dollars was spent inside Canada”; a staggering sum! Yet Canada’s only bomb data center wasn’t worth saving during a global war on terror, as the Prime Minister embarked upon a Liberal kid-in-the-candy-store spending spree of 5.3 billion dollars of taxpayers’ hard-earned cash.
To provide a little further insight about where Canadian tax dollars are going: they went to a conference purveying anti-Semitic trash; the Jewish group, B’nai Brith, called out the Feds for sponsoring this annual World Forum event for “promoting antisemitism and the anti-Israel boycott movement.” Even more heinous was the imagery used in promoting the event, which was described by B’nai Brith as a “blatantly antisemitic caricature that depicts a Wahhabi terrorist emerging from the mouth of American mascot Uncle Sam, who in turn emerges from the mouth of a stereotypical ultra-Orthodox Jew with a Star of David emblazoned on his hat.”
If that wasn’t bad enough, B’nai Brith went on to describe the agenda at the shocking conference:
“One workshop — entitled “Terrorizm [sic], Wahabbism, Zionism” — will seek to explore what it says is how Wahhabis are “mercenaries of Saudi in the service of world Zionism-capitalism…They cooperate for misrepresentation, by accus[ing] Palestinian freedom fighters by terrorism and legitimization crimes of fundamentalist regime in Israel.
Another workshop, on “the Israel Lobby’s war on Palestine solidarity and how best to resist,” features Diana Ralph, whom B’nai B’rith Canada called “a leading Canadian conspiracy theorist who has blamed Israel for staging the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.”
The disgraced German Chancellor Angela Merkel may as well defect to the North American continent. She’ll be right at home with her fellow immoral liberal cronies and gutless cowards who are facilitating the West’s demise, in doing the bidding of our worst enemies and carefully manipulating the public with excuses and deceptions under the banner of multiculturalism and politically correct slogans. If only the crime of treason were still one that anyone wished to prosecute.
“Closure of RCMP bomb data centre lamented by police”, by Evan Dyer, CBC News, August 13, 2016:
Following the Aaron Driver case in Strathroy, Ont., this week, investigators presumably have two important pieces of evidence in their hands: an unexploded bomb of some kind; and the remnants of a device that detonated in a taxi.
Both will offer clues about where Driver learned his bomb-making techniques. Those clues could potentially point to links with other jihadis, or even criminal charges against those who disseminate bomb-making information.
A bomb-maker’s “signature” could be the way he tapes his batteries, solders his wires, or selects a particular brand of watch or cellphone.
Tracking the signatures of bomb-makers, and maintaining a database of them, was just one of the roles of the Canadian Bomb Data Centre, which closed in April due to budgetary constraints. The centre had operated since 1974, when it was set up in response to the bombing campaign of the FLQ.
RCMP Cpl. Annie Delisle says, “As part of its review of the CBDC, the RCMP took into consideration that an external panel of law enforcement advisers from across Canada ranked it of lower importance to police operations. Some of the core services formerly provided by the CBDC will be absorbed into other areas of the RCMP.”
Calgary police: Please reconsider
But not all Canadian police services agree there’s no need for a national forensic centre specializing in bombs and explosives.
This weekend, at the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Police Governance, the Calgary Police Commission is tabling a resolution asking for the centre to reopen.
“Closure of the centre means police agencies no longer have access to co-ordinated information, resources and expertise at a time when it’s becoming increasingly important to have a centralized source for information about the criminal use of explosives,” says the resolution.
Governments should “amplify, rather than diminish, efforts in combating terrorism globally.”
Calgary Police Commission chair Howie Shikaze told CBC News he hopes to persuade other cities to back his campaign to bring the centre back.
“The Calgary Police Service believes it’s an important institution to keep intact. It acts as a place to combine technical expertise, and by combining all of the resources into that one place, what you end up with are resident experts”…
