3. You take such a defensive posture...
When you know nothing regarding my situation or the manner in which CSIS operates in Canada (unless you are of course one of those working for them). Do you have a vested interest in attacking me?

In regards to CSIS; they are mandated to target Canadians on Canadian soil, unlike the CIA which is forbidden to do so. CSIS has more protection and an iron clad secrecy that any democratic intelligence agency would envy,from the Offical Secrecy Act which was decades old (since renamed), to the SIRC which is a shill organization which can only recommend CSIS do things differently. they are such a shill oversight organization in fact that they declared CSIS did no wrong in the Arar case, fortunately, the courts disagreed and he was given $10 million. So much for oversight; a lapdog organization; toothless and irrelevant.

Essentially CSIS can target who they want, when they want and wherever they want in Canada for ANY reason, many based on loose associations and faulty, biased intel. Of course, this leads to many abuses of power, such as Grant Bristow the undercover CSIS operative who funded the Heritage Front with Canadian tax dollars; a radical right wing supremist group, or the recent planting of child porn photos on a suspects computer (which the judge shredded CSIS to pieces for their unethical approach), and of course we do not even need to get into the Arar incident or CSIS's targetting and infiltration of the Reform Party and their leader Preston Manning in an attempt to discredit them. Their interest in me stems from the Reform Party, a party which ironically was founded in part by our current Prime Minister Stephen Harper. It has been suggested they have a file on him due to his association in the 90's. Typical, petty anti-democratic activities from an organization that gets far too LITTLE attention by the world as a human rights abuser.

As much as you place your admiration and trust in this organization, you cannot alter their M.O. CSIS agents are interested in one thing; increasing their budget year after year. That is their number one mandate; their worst National Secrurity enemy is budget cuts bar none. They will operate in any means to manufacture, manipulate, misrepresent and destroy Canadians and their human rights if the ends justify the means. They keep themselves employed by their zealous desire to paint anyone and everyone they can as security threats. Recent comments by Richard Fadden support this, he alluded to their fear of the "lone wolf" threat; basically he wants Canadians to feel that anyone and everyone could be a threat; the boogeyman is out there but CSIS is here to save you. Bollocks. They dig holes and fill them.

The RCMP are no better in the manner in which they operate during criminal investigations. As you probably know CSIS was the former branch of the RCMP, they retained many of the old guard when they were formed in 1984. Such entrapment tactics such as those used by the "Mr. Big" role play are outlawed in the U.S and UK, but perfectly legal in the Canadian intelligence community which still operates in the stoneage. In Montebello Quebec they utilized agent provacateurs to give the appearance the peaceful protest was anything but. They denied involvements for the longest time under proof was provided, then they humbly denied their ops were doing anything violent even when caught on video. Both CSIS and the RCMP have the same pattern of denying, even recently lying in court and being charged with perjury against video evidence. It is startling to see and read how much disregard for law and order is represented by those sworn to protect those very same principles.

You know nothing about my six year battle with Canadian intel, nor the threats they have voiced or lives they have ruined. I have met with former agents, authors who have written about CSIS, lawyers who have battled them, and some who have been targets. I think I am quite aware of how dirty they are, and most importantly how their tactics are systematic abuses of human rights in Canada. I will continue to expose them and their immoral and unethical structure until their is true oversight and accountability.
