The Manchurian Candidate

This is...odd. I'm not a security expert, but I don't think this is necessarily the thing the CSIS director should be talking about with journalists:

Canada's spy agency suspects that cabinet ministers in two provinces are under the control of foreign governments, CBC News has learned.

Several members of B.C. municipal governments are also under suspicion, Richard Fadden, the director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, told CBC News in an exclusive interview.

[...]

"There are several municipal politicians in British Columbia and in at least two provinces there are ministers of the Crown who we think are under at least the general influence of a foreign government."


In other news, Michael Ignatieff will make a 5-day trip to China, beginning July 5th.

Coincidence?

  • Last major report on China's influence in Canada was the Sidewinder Report and it was buried by Chretien. It sounds like someone wanted to take steps to ensure it didn't get buried this time.
