Currently Listed Entitites

I stumbled across a page on the PSEPC website…

(A prize for knowing what that collection of letters stands for…. I’m sorry, your time is up. The answer is Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada. What were they thinking of when they whipped up this sobriquet? How might one say it? Pusaprec? Time to send it back to the Official Government Department and Agency Naming and Labeling Taskforce.)

… that lists all of the, well, “currently listed entities.” What that means, of course, is groups identified by the government as terrorist organizations.

The usual suspects are there, each name linked to a paragraph of explication. And there were also a good many among the 39 that I’d never heard of. As the prefacing page says:

It is not a crime to be listed. However, one of the consequences of being listed is that the entity’s property can be the subject of seizure/restraint and/or forfeiture. In addition, institutions such as banks, brokerages, etc are subject to reporting requirements with respect to an entity’s property and must not allow those entities to access the property nor may these institutions deal or otherwise dispose of the property. It is an offence to knowingly participate in or contribute to, directly or indirectly, any activity of a terrorist group. This participation is only an offence if its purpose is to enhance the ability of any terrorist group to facilitate or carry out a terrorist activity.

There’s a page as well about the listing process.
