People gathered together in the Québec City Islamic cultural center on Sunday, January 29 for a night of worship and prayer. Suddenly, the evening erupted in gunfire. Six people were killed and 19 injured. Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, called these shootings as an “act of terrorism.”
Refugees in Canada
In 2016 alone, Canada has more than 46,000 refugees enter the country. This influx in refugees can be linked to Trudeau’s welcoming of refugees. On more than one occasion, Trudeau has sent tweets such as, “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.”
According to The Guardian, one witness at the Québec City massacre explained, “We thought that here, we were in a safe city, a safe country. But unfortunately, that’s not the case” (The Guardian).
The Need for Truth
The Québec City shootings show the need for truth. Two suspects were arrested, one is confirmed as one of the shooters. The other suspect and those at the scene are key to providing justice and keeping citizens safe.
EyeDetect, a new lie detector solution that measures changes in eye behavior, attains 86% accuracy. EyeDetect can be used as a tool to question the validity of suspects and witnesses. Combined with polygraph, EyeDetect reaches 98.9% accuracy.
Additionally, with the exodus of refugees, countries are facing challenges with security and terrorism. Although the suspect in Québec City was not a refugee, 46,000 refugees still bring concern. The 30-minute EyeDetect exam can address topics such as: “Have you ever committed any acts of terrorism?” “Have you worked with or do you support any terrorist organizations?” Those individuals failing the test could be rejected or screened further.
Each country will have to face how they will handle incoming refugees. Learn how Mark Cuban from Shark Tank explains how EyeDetect can be used to screen refugees.
