Minister in charge: Lawrence MacAulay

What happened: The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) will receive $1.6-billion over five years to train, equip and deploy more intelligence forces and front-line officers. Ottawa hopes the funds will allow the RCMP to better train officers to deal with terrorism and upgrade key technology systems to collect and disseminate intelligence.

Financial details: The RCMP budget was approximately $1.2-billion in 2000-2001, with an extra $64-million added for antiterrorism measures since Sept. 11. The 2000 budget promised the RCMP $584-million in additional funding spread over three years.

Responsibilities: The 21,000-strong RCMP is Canada's federal police force, and serves as provincial or local police in places where it is contracted to do so. (Quebec and Ontario have their own provincial police forces.)

What to expect: More money for antiterrorism measures, but also to boost routine policing. There have been reports that the terrorism probe has forced the Mounties to abandon other major undercover operations.

Critics:
Canadian Alliance: Kevin Sorenson
Bloc Québécois: Pierrette Venne
New Democratic Party: Bill Blaikie
PC/DR Coalition: Jay Hill
