CBSA oversight

Senator pushes Goodale for stopgap CBSA oversight while feds consult public

The RCMP complaints commission could keep tabs on the CBSA for now, giving lawmakers ‘breathing room’ to consider reforms, says Sen. Vern White.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told the Senate National Security and Defence Committee he could not support Senate Liberal Wilfred Moore's bill to create an inspector general to oversee the CBSA because the government had not completed its national security consultation process.
