Air India All 329 aboard were killed, including 60 children aged below 10. Also killed were 22 Americans, 160 Canadians and more than 100 Indian nationals along with others. Achille Lauro Four heavily armed Palestinian terrorists in October hijack the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro, carrying more than 400 passengers and crew, off Egypt. The hijackers demand that Israel free 50 Palestinian prisoners. The terrorists kill a disabled American tourist, 69-year-old Leon Klinghoffer , and throw his body overboard with his wheelchair. After a two-day drama, the hijackers surrender in exchange for a pledge of safe passage. Abu Abbas, leader of the Palestinian guerrillas 911 Excluding the hijackers, 2,974 people died . The dead included nationals from over 80 different countries. Madrid The 11 March 2004 Madrid train bombings (also known as 11/3 and in Spanish as 11-M) consisted of a series of coordinated bombings against the Cercan í as (commuter train) system of Madrid, Spain on the morning of 11 March 2004 (three days before Spain's general elections), killing 191 people and wounding 1,755. London The 7 July 2005 London bombings (also called the 7/7 bombings) were a series of coordinated bomb blasts that hit London's public transport system during the morning rush hour. At 8:50 a.m., three bombs exploded within fifty seconds of each other on three London Underground trains. A fourth bomb exploded on a bus nearly an hour later at 9:47 a.m. in Tavistock Square. The bombings killed 52 commuters and the four suicide bombers, injured 700 , and caused disruption of the city's transport system (severely for the first day) and the country's mobile telecommunications infrastructure. The series of suicide-bomb explosions constituted the largest and deadliest terrorist attack on London in its history.
Transportation is essential to our well-being. Canadians need a reliable, safe and sustainable transportation system to connect our communities, and to connect us with our trading partners. Transport Canada works to help ensure that Canadians have the best transportation system by developing and administering policies, regulations and programs for a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly transportation system; contributing to Canada's economic growth and social development; and, protecting the physical environment. The department's vision statement is to have a transportation system in Canada that is recognized worldwide as safe and secure, efficient and environmentally responsible. Safety and Security of the NTS is the fundamental role of TSEP. Daily value in cross border trade is 1.2B per day in 2005 dollars. The Atlantic Region has more over flights than any other region in Canada. As well the Atlantic Region has a vast and complex marine transportation system, and a vast fleet of surface transportation companies. Many of these companies are involved in trans border activities. At a moments notice any one of these companies have the potential to be involved in an incident, accident, or an act of unlawful interference that would require a full and dedicated timely response by the Transportation Security and Emergency Preparedness Branch as happened following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Without a robust security program it is very possible that cross border initiatives including free trade would be threatened and seriously compromised. Especially when taking in to consideration protectionist elements within the United States. - The Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) was launched in March of 2005 as a trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing. This trilateral initiative is premised on our security and our economic prosperity being mutually reinforcing. The SPP recognizes that our three great nations are bound by a shared belief in freedom, economic opportunity, and strong democratic institutions. The SPP provides the framework to ensure that North America is the safest and best place to live and do business. It includes ambitious security and prosperity programs to keep our borders closed to terrorism yet open to trade. The SPP builds upon, but is separate from, our long-standing trade and economic relationships. It energizes other aspects of our cooperative relations, such as the protection of our environment, our food supply, and our public health.
TSEP is the only Branch within Transport Canada who is multi-modal and who can enforce legislation in all modes of transportation. Powers of enforcement: Aeronautics Act – Ministerial Delegation of Authority, Schedule M5; Marine Transportation Security Act – 23-1, and; Railway Safety Act 28(1), and 31(3).
The Marine Transportation Security Act (MTSA) provides the legislative framework for the Marine Security Program delivered by Transport Canada
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is an international body that promotes the highest practical standards for marine safety, navigation and pollution in international shipping. It consists of approximately 154 member states (Governments). After the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, the IMO created the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS). The ISPS code is a comprehensive set of measures designed to enhance the security of ships and port facilities involved in international shipping.
MARINE TRANSPORTATION SECURITY REGULATIONS Regulate commercial vessels for security in Canadian waters and Canadian ships outside Canada engaged on international voyages. Regulate the marine facilities to which these commercial vessels interface The MTSR do not apply to: * Pleasure craft * Fishing vessels * Vessels in dry-dock, dismantled or laid up * Vessels involved solely in domestic trade * Government vessels

It is Transport Canada's goal in emergency preparedness to work with our partners in industry and government to provide Canada and Canadians with the best possible transportation services under any circumstances. - Swissair Flight 111 (SR-111, SWR-111) was a Swissair McDonnell Douglas MD-11 on a scheduled airline flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, United States to Cointrin International Airport in Geneva, Switzerland. This flight was also a codeshare flight with Delta Air Lines. On September 2, 1998 the aircraft used for the flight, registered HB-IWF, crashed into the Atlantic Ocean southwest of Halifax International Airport at the entrance to St. Margarets Bay, Nova Scotia. The crash site was 8 kilometres (5 mi) from shore, roughly equidistant between the tiny fishing and tourist communities of Peggys Cove and Bayswater. All 229 people on board were killed.  _ Frontier Sentinel Approximately 3,000 personnel from U.S. and Canadian military forces and government civilian agencies participated in the training exercise, Frontier Sentinel 07-2, which focused on maritime homeland security June 24-27. In response to the simulated crisis in the Canadian maritimes, U.S. Fleet Forces Command and several 2nd Fleet assets participated, including the 2nd Fleet flagship amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD-1). The response also included the nuclear-powered submarine USS Miami (SSN 755), P-3 aircraft from Combat Patrol Reconnaissance Wing 5 and a detachment from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 2. Canadian assets included the Maritime Security Operation Centre partners, namely Transport Canada , Canadian Border Services Agency, Department of Fisheries and Ocean, Canadian Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Mounted Police. - Regional Federal Councils comprise the senior officials for the federal departments and agencies in each province and territory. In addition, hundreds of regional managers and staff are involved in the work of Council Sub-committees on a wide range of management and policy issues. The Regional Federal Councils play an important role as an executive forum and in integrated and improved service delivery, two-way communication with Ottawa / headquarters on regional perspectives and federal initiatives, and co-operation with other jurisdictions.
