Protection of our military personnel: XC34-1/1-421-4E-PDF

"In October 2014, Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was deliberately hit by a car outside a support centre for ill and injured military members and veterans in St-Jeansur-Richelieu, and Corporal Nathan Cirillo was shot from behind while standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. These two murders, perpetrated by radicalized individuals, reinforced the vulnerability of Canada and of Canadian women and men in uniform to terrorist attacks. In reaction to those incidents, and further alarmed by the March 2016 knife-attack against two other members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) at a recruitment facility in Toronto, members of the House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defence (the Committee) unanimously adopted a motion to study the protection of CAF personnel at military facilities"--p. 1.
