No More Secrets: Why CSEC and CSIS Should Be Investigated

Late last year, Justice Richard Mosley, a federal court judge, issued a stinging rebuke to Canada's intelligence agencies (CSEC and CSIS) and the Justice Department, ruling that they misled the court when they applied for warrants to permit the interception of electronic communications.

In response, the government should commission an independent review to examine current oversight mechanisms, identify shortcomings and recommend potential reforms.
