Yesterday marked an important day for review of Canada's national security activities: The new National Security and Intelligence Review Agency (NSIRA) came into existence. newswire.ca/news-releases/… #c59 #cdnpoli 1/12
For the first time, there will be an overarching review agency that can examine the activities of all National Security agencies, including CSIS, RCMP, CSE, CBSA, Global Affairs & more. This is in contrast to the siloed approach until now: CRCC for RCMP, SIRC for CSIS, etc. 2/12
It definitely isn't perfect - @ICLMG & others have argued for increased staffing, more independence & greater transparency. There is a fear that problems from the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC), on which NSIRA is modelled, will be transferred to the new body. 3/12

Good piece from @TomWalkom. It's true: we shouldn't be surprised that groups that challenge power, status quo, are spied on. Also important to remember that this doesn't mean we shouldn't push back on that surveillance,... thestar.com/opinion/star-c… #cdnpoli #protestpapers 1/7
...speak out about its impact on our rights, and demand accountability and transparency. @BCCLA, @PaulChampLaw and all the groups involved are doing such important work on this front. #cdnpoli #protestpapers 2/7
We can also see the rhetoric of the Harper years - "foreign funded extremists" - returning with the Kenney government, and it wouldn't be surprising to see it become prominent in the elections #cdnpoli #protestpapers 3/7
