Bossenmaier appointed Chief of CSE

Greta Bossenmaier has been appointed Chief of CSE effective 9 February 2015.

Bossenmaier is currently Senior Associate Deputy Minister of International Development at the Department of Foreign Affairs, Development and Trade. She was Deputy Minister of the Privy Council Office's Afghanistan Task Force from June 2009 to January 2012, and she began her career as a defence scientist in DND's Operational Research and Analysis Establishment. (More bio information here.)

Bossenmaier replaces the current Chief, John Forster, who is to become the Deputy Minister of National Defence effective 2 February 2015.

Forster spent only three years in the job at CSE (he became Chief on 30 January 2012), but his transfer to National Defence is a significant promotion and therefore presumably not an indication of any dissatisfaction with his performance at CSE.

Bossenmaier will be the 9th Chief CSE/Director CBNRC—and the first woman in the role—in the agency's 68-year history:

  • Edward M. Drake (1946 - 1971)
  • N. Kevin O'Neill (1971 - 1980)
  • Peter R. Hunt (1980 - 1989)
  • A. Stewart Woolner (1989 - 1999)
  • D. Ian Glen (1999 - 2001)
  • Keith Coulter (2001 - 2005)
  • John L. Adams (2005 - 2012)
  • John Forster (2012 - 2015)
  • Greta Bossenmaier (2015 - )

What a coincidence that the 3 main players that had their hands in the 30-08 warrant SPECIAL POWERS cookie jar except the fall guy John Sims where appointed to the top 3 most powerful positions in Canada by Harper. Harper must be worried about the political fallout during an election year when we take our case to the courts this year over the abuse my family and the Kathy Liknes family have suffered over the fraudulent 30-08 warrants against us. Rob Nicholson, John Forster, Richard Fadden. Follow the money.

OK, it's taken me nearly a year even though I've been calling it Spook Central for ... ever. I hope Mrs. Bossenmaier has the corner office in the Penthouse.
