Following months of criticism and a recent letter from @theJagmeetSingh and @MattDube, @RalphGoodale has finally acted on the troubling language used in the "2018 Public Report on the Terrorism Threat to Canada" canada.ca/en/public-safe… 1/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
It also comes a day before the release of the public version of a report looking at how national intelligence priorities are determined in Canada. 2/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
Here is the only report I've seen about the letter Singh and Dubé sent to Goodale last week: voiceonline.com/jagmeet-singh-… 3/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
In December 2018, we at @ICLMG joined @nccm, @WorldSikhOrg and others in calling for the Minister Goodale to take action on the troubling language and approach to Muslim and Sikh communities in the report: iclmg.ca/canadian-publi… 4/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
At issue has been how the report is divided into sections "Shia", "Sunni" and "Sikh (Khalistani)" extremism - thereby labeling entire communities as extremists. 5/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
Goodale has stated that this was a problem simply of language, and doesn't reflect the approach to threat assessment. But language often reflects approach... 6/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
If this is how Public Safety saw fit to describe terrorist threats in its public report, what does it mean for their approach and analysis of threats to public safety? 7/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
A change in language in reports is good, but it won't change much if the underlying approach that led to this language isn't addressed. 8/8 #cdnpoli #natsec
