After the election, Parliament resumed its work in early 2006.

I'll let this be my last post in this thread, but in many instances, it's the outliers that are of the most interest. Stock market(US) recoveries have always been relatively quick if you exclude 1 data point The Great Depression since the start of reliable record keeping. In my opinion, any investment advisor who throws out that 1 outlier is at best a fool, but more likely a mendacious salesman. Europe was relatively peaceful in the 20th century if you exclude two outliers(WWI and WWII). Any historian who excluded those outliers in his analysis would exceed Big Brother in historical revisionism. The obvious purpose of the Pan-Am Flight bombing was to retaliate against the USG, and the flight was in route to Detroit, so it easily falls into the category of anti-US terrorism against mostly US civilians that involves Muslims hijacking a plane and killing all the passengers. However, I'm sure that doesn't bear any resemblance to 9/11.
Part 2 of the substantially amended the Official Secrets Act, which became the Security of Information Act (SOIA). The focuses on conduct, such as espionage, that is harmful to, or likely to harm, Canada. The concept of "harm to Canadian interests" (also known as a purpose "prejudicial to the safety or interests of the State") was defined to address a wide array of potential harms, including terrorist activity, interference with critical infrastructure, and the development of weapons of mass destruction in contravention of international law. The is designed to prevent harmful disclosures of information.
In February 2005, the House of Commons Subcommittee on Public Safety and National Security and the Special Senate Committee on the Anti-terrorism Act conducted hearings during the 38th Parliament. Transcripts of these hearings can be accessed on the Parliament of Canada website:
