‘Careful your Muslim in-laws don’t behead you’: CSIS wants lawsuit dropped, saying it never engaged in bigotry

OTTAWA — Canada’s spy agency is asking the Federal Court to dismiss a lawsuit from five Toronto employees, saying it never engaged in or tolerated religious bigotry, used derogatory nicknames or subjected the staffers to reprisals.

In a statement of defence filed with the court late Friday, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service admits “inappropriate language” was used by service employees in informal communications in the Toronto region.
