The RCMP feels that its voice and the voices of other law enforcement agencies aren't being heard in the government's public consultation on national security, which runs online until midnight PST December 15. Could something so weighted towards police powers have truly excluded the police?
While Canada grapples with the problem of jihadi-inspired extremists, the long-standing threat of espionage is also a worrisome preoccupation, CSIS says.

With additional extraordinary powers granted to CSIS since the passing of Bill C51, one only can wonder whether these visits are becoming the norm rather than the exceptions. The disruption powers included in Bill C-51 allow CSIS to seize documents or computers, enter people's properties, spy on them without a judicial warrant.

There's a lot at stake here -- if Canada continues on the path the current government has set it on, then harmful policies on surveillance, Internet censorship, and Big Telecom dominance could be locked in place for a generation, and hold back our digital economy. Canadians deserve better.
Amanda Korody believed "grown-up Jews" go to "eternal hell" when they die, said police notes presented in court.
CSIS and the RCMP have a history of turf wars and limited communication.
Spoiler Alert: The government's characterization of bringing Canada's spy service's capabilities in line with those of allied counterpart is completely inaccurate.
In a recent letter to the Supreme Court, federal lawyer Robert Frater notes Parliament has since enacted changes to the judicial warrant scheme governing CSIS.
