The Proud Boys, a group operating in Canada, who were players in the U.S. Capitol attack have been listed as a terrorist organization in this country. This makes Canada the first country to take this step. Rosie and Elamin lay out what a terrorist designation actually means, how many new tools it offers the government, and who else was added to the list. (Hint: several white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups.) This kind of designation makes for a strong statement, but what impact might it actually have on public safety?
The other big news this week was Canada’s tight supply of COVID-19 vaccines, and reliance on other countries to manufacture what we need. Rosie and Elamin check the status of our supply and what plans are in the works to boost manufacturing here at home.
