Canada: Transport Canada's audit detects problems with security clearances at airports, putting the public "at risk"
An internal audit by Transport Canada into air cargo and airports has detected problems with security clearances at Canadian airports. While no specific consequences were mentioned in the audit, experts note that the problems clearly put the public "at risk". The issues are prevalent throughout both public and private aviation sectors, where the government is responsible for making sure, for example, the people handling baggage on the tarmac, with access to flight ramps or the passenger security checks are properly screened. "These are potentially serious breaches," said Liberal transport critic David McGuinty. "Are people getting inside the restricted perimeter at airports? Is this smuggling? Prostitution rings?".
