The federal government has set up a new counter-terrorism unit that’s designed to protect the energy industry in Alberta.
The RCMP will lead the new integrated national security enforcement team.
It’ll also include members of the Calgary and Edmonton police, CSIS, and federal border police.
The feds have already set up similar counter-terrorism units in Ontario, British Columbia, and Quebec.
Police say the new Alberta unit is needed to protect the vital industry and the province’s natural resources.
