Provident featured on CTV News Tonight

Ctv_3We were featured in a story on tonight’s CTV News regarding the security incident that occurred yesterday at YVR. Specifically, I was asked to comment on the importance of quick response during any security incident.

As CTV reported, between the time that a “suspicious” item was noticed going through an X-Ray machine and the airport screeners notifying CATSA (the National agency responsible for all airport security in Canada) and the RCMP were notified, nearly 45 minutes had elapsed. That was enough time for five flights to depart and all but ensure that airport security would not find the item (which they did not).
