Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says – there is no reason to raise the threat level in Canada – in the wake of the deadly attacks in Paris last week.
And the minister says authorities are being extra vigilant – with everything possible being done – to keep Canadians safe.
Goodale urges people to be alert – but says Canada is basically safe and peaceful.
And he adds – now is not the time for what he called “vigilante retaliation,” an apparent reference to a fire attack on an Ontario mosque – and an assault against a veiled woman in Toronto.
Instead, he says, it’s a time for Canadians to stand together.
RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson says his force is working closely with other security forces around the world to monitor threats.
