City relaunches anti-radicalization centre

The city is putting up new money to restart its anti-radicalization centre. Some may recall that while the centre received praise after it opened in 2015, there was concern about how it went after that, and its director was given the boot last March.

The city controller general had submitted a report that was mostly censored from the media. This twitter thread from journalist Les Perreaux, which I linked at the time, points out some very interesting angles in what little could be read of that report.

I’m not sure exactly what the centre is meant to do – this article, which sounds like it ought to explain it, doesn’t really make it clear, except that it’s not meant to duplicate police efforts – but will be curious to see what turns up about it in the media.
