The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has earmarked $5 million to assess security threats to Canadian diplomats and property around the world, iPolitics reported. 174 countries will be assessed to ascertain how vulnerable Canada's international assets are, and will take into account risks like terrorist attacks and natural disasters. The findings will help build appropriate safeguards and also determine whether Canadian nationals are a future target of criminal acts and other sources of violence.
