One thing that emerged from reflection following the tragedy on Parliament Hill was an observation that the Auditor General of Canada had recommended changes to Parliamentary security in a 2012 report. The Auditor General had recommended one united security force for Parliament, but this, and other, recommendations had not been implemented yet. In addition to its recommendations for improvement, the AG’s report also praised aspects of the Parliamentary security arrangements.
