The only reason he has come out and openly said the things he did on national TV is probably because the powers-that-be in the government were not giving him the time of day and not giving credence to his allegations which I am sure are well founded. Richard Fadden is no fool, he is a true patriot. Before you start throwing stones at the man, think deep. Why would he come out and say these things now just before the G20? There will be people from all over the world and Fadden wants to tell those whom he suspects of espionage that CSIS is watching and diplomatic immunity will not work for the visitors no matter who they happen to be. It will come out sooner than later that he had to do what he did because his superiors gave him a deaf ear. With the kind of behaviour you see from new Canadians and their offspring, how can you doubt him?
25 years ago if the mastermind of the Air India bombing had been arrested by CSIS before he killed all those innocents, without concrete proof, this is exactly the kind of uproar and criticism that would have been flung at them. Am I right, or am I right?
Fadden said five or more countries are quietly enlisting potential politicians at Canadian universities, some of whom belong to their country's diaspora.
Former CSIS agent Michel Juneau-Katsuya said it can be difficult to distinguish between legitimate persuasion of foreign officials, and espionage.
