“This, coupled with the fact that those employees being deployed into theatre may not be fully trained to meet the requirements of the position, (are) causing a direct impact on Task Force Afghanistan’s capabilities,” the document says.
Canada's spy agency suspects cabinet ministers in two provinces are under the control of foreign governments, CBC News has learned.
Several members of B.C. municipal governments are also under suspicion, Richard Fadden, the director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, told CBC News in an exclusive interview.
"We're in fact a bit worried in a couple of provinces that we have an indication that there's some political figures who have developed quite an attachment to foreign countries," Fadden said.
At least five countries are surreptitiously recruiting future political prospects in universities, with China acting the most aggressively, he said. But Middle East countries are also involved.
"A number of countries take the view that if they can develop influence with people relatively early in their careers, they'll follow them through," Fadden said. "Before you know it a country is providing them with money, there's some sort of covert guidance."
Sources said that as of November 2009, one of the deserters was in Canada, one is now a lawful permanent resident in the U.S., one has left the country and another four are in federal custody and in removal proceedings. The other 10 remain unaccounted for.
One of the largest and most violent anti-globalization movement protests occurred for the 27th G8 summit. Following those events and the September 11, 2001 attacks two months later, the G8 have met at more remote locations. The 7 July 2005 London bombings were timed to coincide with the 31st G8 summit in Scotland.

Lately a storm has been brewing. CSIS (Canada's CIA) has been everywhere in the news recently. They went from the average Canadian not even knowing they exist, to everyone knowing in the past couple months.

The news also reports[/url] our JTF-2 (special forces, formerly a specialised branch of RCMP then privatised in to full time counter-terror unit), getting in on security.
JTF 2 is a military organization comprised of Canadian Forces personnel from a wide range of occupations. The unit was created on April 1, 1993 when the Canadian Forces accepted responsibility for federal counter-terrorism operations from the RCMP.
Commandos prepare for summits in the shadows
OTTAWA – The Canadian military’s premiere special forces soldiers are ready to spring into action if terrorists target the G8 meetings in Huntsville or the G20 summit that follows immediately in downtown Toronto.
In an exclusive interview with the Star, the commander of Joint Task Force Two shared some details of the unit’s preparedness for this month’s summits, but in keeping with the shadowy nature of the black-clad unit, much of its work remains secret.
If the billion-dollar summit-security plan works, you will neither see nor hear from Canada’s counterterror strike squad two weeks from now.
The elite commandos, responsible for combatting terrorists at home and abroad, have been busier this year than at any time since JTF2 was established 17 years ago. In addition to their clandestine work in southern Afghanistan, they’ve been in Haiti providing security after the January earthquake, at the Vancouver Olympics in February and preparing for this month’s three-day gathering of the world’s most important political leaders.
Any details about the number of troops from the unit that will be involved in the massive security operation or where they’ll be located are considered to be state secrets.

Toronto EMS confirmed three people had been injured.
“We have a call of three people bleeding from the head in the area of the protest. . . . They are stable. Toronto EMS is trying to get into the area. We’re close by and waiting for it to be safe to enter,” said Kim McKinnon
While most were content to sing, wave placards and dance, a smaller group, estimated at roughly 100, were doing more serious damage, smashing windows at banks and shops in the downtown, as well as attacking two media vehicles.
Miller rejected suggested the Toronto police stood back and didn’t do enough to stop the rioters from damaging property in the downtown core
Miller said he thinks the federal government should provide financial compensation to people whose property was damaged – something the Harper government has said it was not inclined to do
Meanwhile, two Toronto veterinarians say they were woken up at gunpoint Saturday morning by police who thought they were the anti-G20 protesters who live in the apartment downstairs.
Dr. John Booth said he was handcuffed, and spent 15 minutes on the curb outside the home in cuffs before his identity was cleared up. The officers said they were looking for an activist named “Peter,” who apparently lived downstairs.
