Canada vows tougher laws as citizens worry in face of attacks

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada vowed on Friday to toughen laws against terrorism as an opinion poll showed a majority of Canadians lacked confidence in their security services' ability to deter homegrown radicals who struck twice in the past week. Investigators said there was no apparent link between the two attackers, who killed a soldier each in Quebec and the capital Ottawa, but Canadians worried about the parallels. Police said both assailants had been through a radicalization, a term the government uses to refer to Canadians who become supporters of militant Islamic groups. #Business #facebook #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #Government #Italy #Argentina #Mexico #opinion

Canada's anti-terror laws, and what might come next

(Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper pledged more powers for security forces on Thursday after a gunman killed a soldier on Wednesday and then raced through the country's Parliament building in Ottawa before being killed. Canada has introduced a series of legal changes since Sept 11, 2001 meant to prevent possible attacks, toughen penalties and make offenders easier to prosecute.

Thane Don't believe glossy real estate ads, this city is no escape from Mumbai

Thane suffers from a highly politicised municipal governance that is ineffective -- its green cover claims are dubious, it has no idea how to deal with the fastest growing population and its infrastructure is crumbling. #Thane #InMyOpinion #Mumbai #Infrastructure #Governance #realty #stray dogs #Transport #Real estate prices #Trees #Green Cover #Mumbai Metropolitan Region
