OTTAWA — A national-security watchdog has called for stricter controls on the Canadian military's spying, including the possibility of legislation spelling out when and how defence intelligence operations can take place.
 
In a report issued Tuesday, the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians said National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces have one of the largest intelligence programs in Canada, yet these operations get little outside scrutiny.
 
The committee, which examined thousands of pages and received several closed-door briefings, found that defence agencies carry out a full range of intelligence activities, collecting information through sensitive methods including technical means, human sources and investigations.
 
It says these activities entail considerable risks, including possible infringements on Canadians' rights.

In all the press coverage of the “the SNC-Lavalin affair,” not enough attention has been paid to the company’s involvement in Site C – the contentious $11 billion dam being constructed in B.C.’s Peace River valley.
 
The Liberals say that any pressure they put on Jody Wilson-Raybould to rubber-stamp a “deferred prosecution agreement” for SNC-Lavalin was to protect jobs at the company. But the pressure may have been to protect something much bigger: the Liberals’ vision for Canada’s future. Site C epitomises that vision.
 
The “Many Lives” of Site C
 
Birthed in 1959 on the drawing boards of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and BC Electric (then owned by Montreal-based Power Corp), the Site C dam has been declared dead, then alive, then dead again several times over the next five decades until 2010, when BC Premier Gordon Campbell announced that Site C would proceed.

Image result for image of irwin cotler as minister of justice

 

 

Image of the Honorable Irwin Cotler as Minister of Justice and Attorney General. in 2004, I wrote to him about my being discriminated on the grounds of Political opinion under the ICCPR, 

When I was national leader of the Green Party of Canada,I found out in 1998 that I was on a RCMP Threat assessment list. In 2002  I filed a case about being on a threat Assessment list and was in Court was against Paul Partridge  the Lawyer for the Attorney General office.. The lawyer from the then Attorney General Office was obviously acting in the political role of the Minister of Justice.  I was appealing in court for the attorney General to reveal the reason for my being on the RCMP list. The Judge said that I did not have enough information; I replied that he placed me in a conundrum because the government had refused to divulge the reason for my being placed on the list. The judge struck my claim but did not dismiss my case and advised me to go through access to information and Privacy to obtain documents which I did but the responses were all didacted for international reason of security.  In 2004,I wrote the enclosed letter to Irwin Cotler as Minister of justice and Attorney General and received no assistance from him. Irwin Cotler is purported as being concerned about discrimination on the grounds of political or other opinion in other countries yet not in Canada in 2004 when he was minister of Justice in his partisan role or as Attorney General, in his non partisan role.

Cuba's Ambassador Responds to CBC News

Cuba's Ambassador responds to the CBC News tendentious and manipulative article, Canada at odds with Cuban 'ally' over Maduro's fate.

I reject categorically and in the strongest terms the tendentious and manipulative article "Canada at odds with Cuba 'ally' over Maduro's fate", written by journalist Evan Dyer and published today, Sunday, March 3, 2019, by CBC News.

Good journalism does not speculate, it informs objectively.

The assertion that thousands of Cubans would allegedly be inserted into the structures of the armed and security forces of Venezuela, holding the government of (legitimate) President Nicolás Maduro, is a scandalous slander. I demand that CBC News present a proof, which evidently it does not have, since it does not appear in the whole article.
