“Harper touts increased funding for counter-terrorism initiative while campaigning in Quebec” (Global News)

The Canadian Press:

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper says he would renew a federal initiative aimed at countering terrorism and radicalization in Canada.

Harper was in Victoriaville, Quebec, where he committed an additional 10-million dollars 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.
