A suspected Russian spy has been arrested in Montreal as he was about to board a plane to leave the country, capping a Canadian counter-intelligence operation that suggests espionage is alive and well long after the Cold War.

The man, who had been living in Canada under the name Paul William Hampel, was taken into custody by Canada Border Services Agency officers at Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Dorval at around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The arrest came after two federal Cabinet ministers signed a security certificate last Thursday declaring him a danger to Canada for espionage, paving the way for his deportation. It is the first security certificate approved by the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

So the Russians are at it out canada.

Yes indeed, it is a troubling case

Local news report that the man keeps to his Legend and deny working for the Russian Governement

While I read your link, I haven't seen an important point to add

The man was caught with many different monetary devises, cell phones and I Believe (I might be wrong on that one) 4 different "true" passports

Wich in my opinion is Highly Suspicious

I think he was here for industrial spying, since Cold War is over.
