Episode 183: The RCMP at 150: where has it been and where is it going?
Not many organisations can say that they have been around for 150 years. Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is one. From it’s start as a police force in the vastness of northwest Canada to today’s modern law enforcement agency, the ‘Mounties’ have seen a lot. To commemorate this important milestone, Borealis is joined by Sam Jaroudi, a 23-year veteran of the Force.

Canadian Intelligence Eh
In a world of multiple voices and opinions it can be very hard to know where to turn. One choice is to look to those who actually worked in counter-terrorism in the national security world. In these half-hour podcasts, 30-year Canadian intelligence veteran Phil Gurski is joined by a fascinating array of individuals with something meaningful to say about these issues as they provide insight into what they mean and what we need to do about them.
