Canadian army spying on natives: Report
According to recently released documents, the Canadian Forces’ National Counter-Intelligence Unit has been gathering intelligence on the country’s indigenous groups.
The documents, which have been released under the Access to Information Act, show that the unit has released at least eight reports on the activities and future protests of indigenous organizations between January, 2010, and July, 2011.
The so-called Counter-Intelligence Information Reports alert the Canadian army to events organized by groups such as the Assembly of First Nations, the Algonquin Anishinabeg Nation Tribal Council and Red Power United.
President of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs Grand Chief Stewart Phillip described the reports as “unsettling,” Global Research reported.
“The fact that they are directing their intelligence activities at native communities and native organizations is deeply disturbing,” Phillip said.
