A paper very much worth the read by Prof. Craig Forcese of the University of Ottawa–it includes an interesting discussion of CSIS’ legislatively clarified and expanded mandate to operate abroad, highlights the ongoing problems of CSIS/RCMP cooperation and the struggles faced by our current “stove-piped” review agencies, and deals with questions raised by CSE’s growing counter-terrorsim capabilities. One aspect of Canadian intelligence it does not treat is the expanded role of the Canadian Forces.

Lots to chew on.
