However, despite it achievements, Canada faced many new and longstanding political challenges. Canada was not immune to widespread turmoil and uncertainty rooted in war, disease, and the effects of globalization such as SARS, mad cow disease, and a large-scale blackout affecting the north-eastern United States and Ontario. The United States was becoming mired in a complex and prolonged war with Iraq, and a large contingent of Canada's armed forces remained in Afghanistan. Additional security measures were implemented to meet the threat of terrorism, while Mahar Arar's accounts of torture endured in a Syrian jail became a symbol of public doubt about many of the new counter-terrorism initiatives.” (from the dj).
