10 Minute Primers: Review and Accountability in Canadian National Security

I have posted a new 10 minute (ok 12 minute) primer on review (which is often called "oversight") of national security and intelligence agencies in Canada, in the context of the new bill C-22 (creating a National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians).  I have tried to do four things: 1. identify the justification for review; 2. identify our present challenges; 3. discuss the implications of bill C-22; 4. identify remaining gaps.  The paper co-authored with Kent Roach referred to at the end of the video is here.
