Canada’s spy agency creates international secret-swapping forum on ‘terrorist travel’

OTTAWA — The Canadian Security Intelligence Service has set up a “multilateral forum of trusted partners” to share information on suspected extremists travelling abroad — a group that extends beyond its customary Five Eyes spy network, a newly released memo says.

In the memo, “CSIS Response: Addressing the Terrorist Travel Threat,” Canada’s spy agency also flags a concern about the challenges it faces in going further to build relationships with “non-traditional partners.”
