Senate says terror info not shared

The Senate committee on anti-terrorism says the national security network that gathers intelligence on potential terror plots is still not sharing enough information across departments, the Canadian Press reported. Each organization has different legislative rules. Conservative Senator Hugh Segal, the committee chair, called for the prime minister's national security adviser, Stephen Rigby, to be given powers to share terror intelligence across government and co-ordinate national security, and for these powers to be enshrined in legislation.
