In a further step toward security cooperation between Canada and Israel, Public Security Minister Avi Dichter met Monday in Toronto with his Canadian counterpart, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Stockwell Day. Following the meeting, Dichter and Day announced that they would accelerate negotiations toward the signing of a mutual cooperation agreement on homeland security.

The two signed an interim agreement through which, in the upcoming week, three teams will be established to enable cooperation in the fields of combating terror, fighting crime, and border security. Later, the two ministries will work to iron out details involving the final cooperation agreement, culminating in the signing of a joint agreement.

During the Toronto meeting, Dichter and Day exchanged updates on matters of mutual interest and sought to identify methods to improve the implementation of the bilateral cooperation between the two ministries. They also agreed to work to identify options for direct communication in order to maximize the exchange of information, technology and operational activity.

The two also reviewed the activities of parallel ministry bodies in terms of both administrative management as well as local activity in confronting homeland security issues.

Dichter has been on an official visit to the United States and Canada since last week, during which he met with US Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, as well as US Marshalls Service head John Clark, with whom he discussed Israel's nascent witness protection program.

During his stay in the US, the Kadima minister has also been active in helping to lay the groundwork for the upcoming Annapolis summit as well as addressing the annual convention of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee).

Depuis quand Stockwell Day est-il ministre de la sécurité publique ET des "Préparatifs d'Urgence"? Je suis Canadien et je ne savais pas que ça existait comme charge. Même le site web de Day le présente comme un simple ministre de la sécurité publique. À partir de quand, et pour quelles raisons, utilise-t-il l'expression "Préparatifs d'Urgence"? Wikipedia dit: "The current public safety minister is Stockwell Day, who is styled simply as Minister of Public Safety."

Des milliers de membres de la communauté juive de Montréal ont manifesté au centre-ville, hier, pour souligner le 59e anniversaire de la création de l'État d'Israël.

L'événement s'est déroulé dans la bonne humeur, au son de la musique traditionnelle juive, et n'a été marqué que par une contre-manifestation pacifique de juifs ultra-orthodoxes réclamant le démantèlement de ce même État juif. Le ministre de la Sécurité publique, Stockwell Day, ainsi que le chef de l'opposition libérale, Stéphane Dion, ont pris la parole devant la foule.
