Canada Spying on Your Internet and Phone

(Reuters) – Canada has no access to data gathered by a top-secret U.S. government surveillance program, but the nation’s secret signals intelligence agency is monitoring foreign phone and internet traffic, officials said on Monday.

An ex-CIA employee working as a contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency says the NSA is running a massive effort called Prism that scoops up information from phone companies as well as internet data from companies such as Google and Facebook.

His revelations have opened a broad debate on privacy rights and the limits of security programs in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States. It also posed questions as to whether the NSA was sharing data with allies.

Opposition lawmakers had said they feared Canada’s top-secret Communication Security Establishment (CSE), a branch of the defense ministry that specializes in gathering signals intelligence abroad, might be using Prism data to circumvent rules that ban it from spying on Canadians.
