CSE on CTV

Another blast from the relatively recent past...

CTV Montreal ran a three-part documentary on CSE back at the end of October/beginning of November. The transcripts of the shows are on-line here:

Communications Security Establishment, Part I, 30 October 2006

Communications Security Establishment, Part II, 1 November 2006

Communications Security Establishment, Part III, 3 November 2006

In contrast to Canadian Government Executive's recent experience (see Adams speaks), CTV's Todd van der Heyden found officials at CSE a tad publicity shy:
FOR THREE MONTHS, WE TRIED TO TALK TO THE CSE. IN SEPTEMBER, THEY GAVE US A TOUR INSIDE THEIR FACILITIES...WITHOUT OUR CAMERAS. BUT THEN APPARENTLY GOT COLD FEET FOR THE SIT-DOWN INTERVIEW. THEY STOPPED RETURNING OUR CALLS.

Another advance to the rear for the "openness offensive"...

I need to systematically read your current and past articles on this blog because its a goldmine - particularly due to likely commonalities with DSD.

I'm liking you to my blog.
