what do you mean by "because of the terrorist stuff going on"?

Why would anyone hire additional security because a group or alleged terrorists were just caught?

I don't think any private institution has armed security guards in Canada. At the hospital I work at we have security with asps and pepper spray, so if we did have some terrorist thing going down our security would be useless.

Because they are worried that they didn't get 'em all???

The purpose of the building security is not so much to stop terrorists and crooks, but to keep an eye out for things out of the ordinary. At one of the last buildings I worked at, the security guy at the front desk remembered EVERYONE's names, even people who hadn't worked at that builing in 3-4 years - they'd show up for a meeting and he'd call them by their first name, ask them how they're doing, etc...

That's the kind of guy you want keeping an eye on things, whether you're trying to prevent terrorism or simple theft.

When my mom was in Canada, she used to work for Banks and insurance companies and stuff on contract (IT) and some of the buildings were heavily guarded. The Royal Bank Systems and Technology Building on Front st. had a desk with three guards and turn-styles that you couldn't pass without your security badge. You had to go through those to even get to the elevator. If you jumped over them, the guys at the desk would immediately disable the lifts.

That place was intense.

She also told me that when someone would be terminated--regardless of the reason--they had to be escorted everywhere by a security guard and supervised while clearing out their desks. By the time they returned to their station, their security clearance would have been revoked already. Those who didn't have cars were taken home in a taxi paid for the by the company. She said this was standard procedure where-ever she worked.

They've since upgraded. Instead of turnstyles, they have full-on locked, one-person-per revolving booths that requires a magnetic-pass photo ID card.

We're right next to the CSIS building, and I'm over there as well, at least once or twice a day. Meh, if it happens, it happens... no sense getting scared of the boogey man derkas. And I have a feeling it won't happen. ;)

The building to the other side of mine belongs to the same company previously mentioned as well, and it's even worse (or better, depending on how you look at it) getting in there. You need an issued card with a passcode (not marked on the card), and you step into this tiny 5'x5' cube room, the door quickly self-closes and locks behind you, you stand on this little pad to the left of the door into the elevator lobby (pressure sensitive floor), swipe the card, enter the code, and only then does the door unlock so you can get into the main part of the building. I feel like a CIA analyst when I go into that one. :p

I hope no derka-derkas read Tribe and blow me up now that they know what kind of security they have here.

It's ridiculous.

Shouldn't there be more security at Islamic or Arab places like the consulate and certain mosques?

Didn't a mosque just get vandalized?

I don't know, do terrorists strike when their people have been caught? Last minute desperate jihad?

It's funny how these financial and private institutions buy all these expensive-high tech security devices, but once a threat as been noticed, they have no response capabilities.

I think it's more a case of private firms who might be linked to obvious political and financial targets taking it upon themselves to put someone out front. But yeah, the governing bodies should have had a more comprehensive plans in place for the backlash against religious/cultural groups that resulted from an announcement that *they* had control over the timing of.

Speaking of high-tech security, apparently the CN Tower has a "state of the art" security system. Anyone wanna speculate what it involves? I can't even imagine that thing crashing down. Also, anyone want to speculate why the CBC building was targetted of all the various news organizations?

Maybe I was misunderstood; they have upgraded since SellyCat's mom last worked there, not since the recent developments.

And visible security is more about piece of mind and and legal obligations (for personal financial information, for example - people are touchy about this stuff, with good cause) than actual security... I break certain small but important protocols all the time (by accident, of course) to test them, and they never do what they're supposed to do.

Why should this be the jurisdiction of any "governing bodies?" Shouldn't security outside (or inside) private facilities such as mosques be strictly up to the facilities themselves?

I could take it one step further and ask: in light of (prepare for annoying catch-all phrase)....."current world events".....shouldn't mosques be on stricter security levels anyway (in anticipation of said increases in potential incidences of vandalism, etc)?

it has ties to gov't and maybe someone thinks they're biased? or maybe they think CBC stands for Christinans Bring Crusades?
