Tories defend expanded powers of CSIS amid calls for greater oversight

Ottawa is rejecting calls for parliamentary oversight of the nation’s spies, dismissing such increased scrutiny as “needless red tape.”

Conservatives on Sunday defended their controversial new anti-terrorism legislation, which has faced criticism for massively expanding the powers of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service without added public oversight.

Yet another benefit of our ludicrous Immigration policy.

I wonder how much is spent by our security services countering the Muslim threat as a percentage of their overall budgets?
