Conservative Leader Stephen Harper says he would renew a federal initiative aimed at countering terrorism and radicalization in Canada.
Harper was in Victoriaville, Que., where he committed an additional $10-million over five years to the Kanishka Project.
The project was established in 2011 to fund research into preventing and countering violent extremism.
It was named in recognition of the 1985 Air India bombing, which killed 331 people.
Harper also began his campaign Friday commemorating the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, including the 24 Canadians who died that day.

I agree but we can’t do this ourselves, we need to get other countries to become part of this, something out side of the UN…Israel and England and other European countries and the US, with the same objectives.
this should be a priority for any western nation bringing in these refugees. its not a priority for a number of middle eastern nations, however, as they are not accepting any refugees!
