Shhhhh….don’t tell anyone but Canada has authorized tighter airline security measures, but won’t say what or why or where, just that they are “evidence based”
The Canadian federal government plans to impose newly enhanced airline security measures on certain Canada-bound flights, but has refused to provide any details about which airlines, airports, or countries would be affected by the restrictions, citing a need for secrecy.
CP24 Garneau said the measures — in place until further notice — would ensure greater security on flights coming to Canada “from certain countries,” but he added little else. “I’m not in a position to tell you from where for obvious security reasons, and I’m not in a position to tell you specifically the measures either, and you will understand that for security reasons we don’t talk about these things, but we have, following our analysis, put in place additional measures.”
