This response from the director of #CSIS to the latest review of its activities is mind-boggling:… #SIRC #C59 #cdnpoli
He defends actions by CSIS that the review committee finds is at odds with current laws by saying the agency is preparing for Bill #C59... which isn't even a law yet. #cdnpoli
How can it be acceptable for the director of Canada's main intelligence agency to respond to "You're breaking the rules" by saying, "Don't worry new rules are coming, so we're just getting ready for those"? #C59 #cdnpoli
It kind of undermines the whole argument from the government that they have been open to changes to #C59 if their primary intelligence agency is already working as if it's provisions are fact. #cdnpoli
And we can't expect the Minister to take action on this, as he essentially says the same thing in his response to the #SIRC review: Don't worry, once #C59 becomes law, it will deal with all this:…
Except, as so many have raised, #C59 doesn't effectively deal with this, if "dealing with this" means bringing in new limitations & robust authorizations coupled w/ strengthened review and oversight in order to protect privacy and other rights #cdnpoli
