PM’s office admits security rules breached in two videos

The Prime Minister’s Office now admits that security rules were breached after it posted two videos that showed the faces of military personnel serving overseas — including members of Joint Task Force 2, a secretive special operations force — potentially putting them at risk, the Star reports. The Canadian Armed Forces imposed restrictions on revealing the identity of its personnel after two soldiers were killed in Canada in targeted attacks last October. The two videos, produced by the prime minister’s own staff for his promotional video channel 24 Seven, were taken off line Tuesday morning. The Prime Minister’s Office admitted hours later that the videos should never have been made public. “After a second review, it became apparent that two of the videos should not have been posted,” said Rob Nicol, the prime minister’s director of communications.
