CSIS using new powers to disrupt terrorists since Bill C-51 became law

Michel Coulombe, director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, told a Commons committee today that Canada’s spy agency has used new disruption powers it was granted when Bill C-51 became law this past summer.

This marks the first time CSIS has publicly acknowledged the use of its new powers under the Anti-terrorism Act to disrupt suspected plots rather than just relay information about those plots to the federal government and the RCMP
