Air India report

2010-06-21

Queen’s University professor and national security expert Anthony Seaboyer is available to talk about the Air India report that was released today.

“The report’s recommendations must be implemented as soon as possible because a terrorist attack on Canadian soil is much more likely today than it was 25 years ago,” says Professor Seaboyer, who is with the Queen’s University Centre for International Relations. “Our proximity to major U.S. cities like Chicago or Seattle make planes heading out of Canadian airports targets not only for attacks against Canada but also the U.S. That's why we need similar measures to those taken in US. It will take quite a while to introduce substantial changes that really improve the situation. Additional costs will be unavoidable.”
