Spyworld: Inside the Canadian American Intelligence Establishments

Overview

For twenty years Canada has been spying on other nations. Outside public scrutiny or Parliamentary review and frequently acting at the behest of U.S. and U.K. intelligence agencies. Canada has been spying electronically from its embassies in capitals as far-flung as Moscow, New Delhi, Bucharest, Rabat and Caracas. It has then shared the results with its allies. There is every reason to believe Canada is still doing "embassy collection" today. Techniques developed during the "Cold War" have been honed for ...

Overview

For twenty years Canada has been spying on other nations. Outside public scrutiny or Parliamentary review and frequently acting at the behest of U.S. and U.K. intelligence agencies. Canada has been spying electronically from its embassies in capitals as far-flung as Moscow, New Delhi, Bucharest, Rabat and Caracas. It has then shared the results with its allies. There is every reason to believe Canada is still doing "embassy collection" today. Techniques developed during the "Cold War" have been honed for political and economic espionage in the nineties. The agency responsible is the top-secret Communications Security Establishment (CSE) of whose existence most Canadians are unaware. CSE has also used sophisticated equipment, much of it provided by the U.S., to listen in on Canadian and on American citizens, raising vital questions about civil liberties and the invasion of privacy.

Its record is impressive: if it wants to, it can intercept almost any phone, fax or radiowave transmission. How do we know all this? Because one man, Mike Frost, a communications officer at CSE for nineteen years, has decided that in the post-"Cold War" era it is time for the Canadian public to be told what its government has been doing and for a public debate to ensue. As he tells the story of his career, he paints a remarkable picture of the Security Establishments of Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. The Americans in particular are revealed as possessing high-tech wizardry that they use for political and economic spying - including, according to Frost, highly controversial spying on the Canadian government. Much of Canada's spying from 1972 to 1990 was undertaken for the Americans. Frost and his immediate boss were at the centre of the "embassy-collection" scheme, which was code-nam
