'Significant and clear' threat: What Canada's CSIS spy chief says about China behind closed doors. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec nationalpost.com/news/canada/si…
In a presentation to Canada’s top university administrators in the spring of 2018, Vigneault said China represents “the most significant and clear” challenge when it comes to espionage targeting Canadian campuses (and civil society). #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
Vigneault warned that certain foreign intelligence services, “especially those in China and Russia” were engaged in the “monitoring and/or coercion” of students, faculty and university officials in an effort to further their political influence. #cdnpoli #cdnatsec
Vigneault warned of China’s building of 5G networks around the world was giving rise to “new espionage and disruption risks.” (also high risk of cancer, environmental destruction, and other diseases from this technology) #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
There is also a threat of foreign interference, the act by foreign agents to try to influence the opinions and decisions of Canadians in order to obtain a political or economic advantage. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
This can take the form of social media “bot-nets,” “fake news” and advertising campaigns designed to confuse and distort public perception. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
Vigneault identified China and Russia among the countries seeking to exploit universities’ “culture of openness” to acquire knowledge and technology. #cdnpoli #cdnnatsec
