#cdnpoli Spying On You

The G20 scandal just got broader. Besides Canadian police massively violating protester’s rights, the NSA appears to have been assisted by CSEC to illegally spy on Canadians in Ontario for the G20.

Remember the Fake Lake? Maybe it was a giant cover for an underwater spy base? No, of course it wasn’t, that’s silly. What is real though is the Prime Minister refusing to get or give honest answers about which laws were broken by our signals intelligence organization.

The office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is declining to comment on allegations that Canadian authorities allowed a U.S. intelligence agency to spy on dozens of delegates during the 2010 G8 and G20 summits held in Canada.

The allegations are once again shining a light on Canada’s involvement in spying on world leaders, as previously leaked documents revealed that Canadian authorities have participated in similar espionage in the past.

The new allegations are contained in top secret documents retrieved by American whistleblower Edward Snowden that were obtained by the CBC, and outlined in a report Wednesday.

The documents, according to the CBC, show that American authorities used the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa as a command post for the National Security Agency to conduct a spy operation that was approved by Canadian authorities during the summits held in Toronto and Huntsville, Ont. NSA briefing notes, according to the report, described the plan as “closely co-ordinated with the Canadian partner.” It’s alleged that the “partner” is the Communication Security Establishment of Canada.
