Liberty Defense Testifies Before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health
Vancouver, BC and Ottawa, ON – June 5, 2019 – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (“Liberty”) (TSXV: SCAN; FRANKFURT: LD2), a leader in security and weapons detection solutions, was invited to and testified before the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Health on June 4, 2019, regarding the security of healthcare facilities throughout Canada.
Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense, testified as an industry expert on urban security, and also presented Liberty’s HEXWAVE technology, to the leaders who manage and maintain all aspects of Health Canada.
Incidents of violence in healthcare facilities has increased over the last decade in Canada and abroad, leaving both healthcare workers and patients more vulnerable to dangerous situations in hospitals, clinics and other facilities.
“We would like to thank the Canadian federal government and Members of Parliament for this opportunity to discuss the current security landscape with respect to healthcare facilities and workers in Canada, and also introduce the work that we are doing with Liberty’s weapons detection technology, HEXWAVE,” said Liberty CEO, Bill Riker. “Safety and security within healthcare facilities can be particularly vulnerable and requires a proactive approach to early detection balanced against a positive customer experience of a healthcare atmosphere. We are looking to help be a part of that solution.”
