theBreaker.news Podcast: How to stop violent extremism in polarized Canada

For the week of May 15, 2022:

How to stop the rise of violent extremism in Canada? 

That’s what’s on the mind of the all-party Public Safety and National Security Committee at the House of Commons.

Former CSIS director Richard Fadden (Mackin)

Former Canadian Security Intelligence Service director Richard Fadden testified at the May 12 meeting about ideologically motivated violent extremism. More than a decade ago, Fadden famously warned Canadians that China and Russia were meddling in Canadian politics. 

Along with religious and poetically motivated violent extremism, “IMVE” is a national security threat. It involves actors on the far right and the far left, fuelled by online radicalization, conspiracy theories and foreign influence. It is also corrosive to democracy.

Listen to highlights of the meeting, including Fadden’s thoughts on Canada’s partisan political environment and his idea to combat IMVE. 

Also, commentary and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
