THIS is how "community outreach" is done - THIS is how the govt. can generate credibility for its operations: EXPLAIN what their job is ...as federal law enforcement, as national security people, as parents, as citizens, as law abiding Muslims.
The speaker photographed here is RCMP Superintendent and Head of the National Security Section, "O" Division, Doug Best. He giving the intro at a recent "information session" at a local Muslim place of worship. ALSO present: local Toronto Police to explain to youth why they get stopped and searched and how to handle it in a way best for both the police and the youth plus other issues like guns N gangs. ALSO present: the Canada Border Services Agency to show examples of smuggling, how they search your bags, what questions they ask upon entry and why.
This specific congregation is Salafi inclined, with the Imam hailing from Yemen. The majority of congregants are of African background, including Somalia, Ghana, Pakistan and Yemen. It went VERY VERY well.
