National security oversight committee coming by summer, says Ralph Goodale

CBC News | May 13, 2016

The Liberals' promised national security oversight committee is in the works for a summer debut, said Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.

The all-party committee of parliamentarians will be tasked with reviewing security-related issues. Forming the committee was an election promise in response to the controversial anti-terrorism law known as C-51, and part of the mandate letter Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave to Goodale.
