Is Privacy Commissioner going too far over CBSA’s new screening system?

Brian LilleyArchive

The Canada Border Services Agency is about to implement a new system for screening air passengers which harmonizes with the American system.

The Privacy Commissioner, Daniel Therrien, is worried that this could lead to racial and ethnic profiling.

I explain why I think his concerns are misplaced and suggest that if anything, getting better at zeroing in on certain patterns of behaviour generally exhibited by terrorists in addition to looking at a few broad categories, should result in less profiling, more success for our security services and improved safety for Canadians.

The fact that it is deemed necessary to screen individuals who come to our country, is a sign of the times. I suspect that if a refugee were to be refused entry, the decision would be overruled by Trudeau and his gang but the process is in place and this is a good thing. The people who represent the most risk to Canadians, are the Pakistani and North Africans. They are good actors and have been known to steel children and force women to act like they are a family group. They will abandon the children and the woman, as soon as they have passed inspection. They then revert back to their natural character and become rapists and criminals again, creating havoc amongst native Canadians.
Yes they should be screened thoroughly and Race should be an important part of this screening.

Why should we, as Canadians be subjected to the battles that will ensue, just to try and live in the civilized manner we are accustomed to.
It is obvious that Trudeau is only interested in changing Canada into a third world country ruled by Him and controlled by a strongly armed, Gestapo like police force.

Stop Trudeau or say goodbye to Canada.

D MARY…I could not agree more!!!
Its a privilege to visit our country not a right.
But it is our right to protect our citizens and logically one of the best places to do that is a Border Crossing.
And if you got nothing to hide what’s the big deal and if still don’t like it don’t travel. Cause the Bad Guys count on are successful cause of our left wing liberal “PC Do Gooders” having influence of security matters.

I don’t believe there is such a thing as the CBSA going to far, digging too deep to protect us.
