New Security Program At YVR

Beginning this January, YVR launched a new security program for passengers at the Vancouver Airport called “Passenger Behavior Observation”
Transport Canada Spokesperson Patrick Charette said
“We will have officers trained to look for suspicious behavior and to assess whether they are passengers that represent threats for aviation security.” and “the program is not ethnic or racial profiling because officials will be looking for specific behaviors”

The program is only being tested at the YVR airport as part of YVR CEO Sean Bassi’s new plan for security enhancement.
