    Canada's National Security Advisor Still Suspects Canadian Politicians Are Under Foreign Influence

    Canada has a spy problem, according to the country's top national security advisor. And it's not going away.

    Richard Fadden, a senior advisor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, suspects foreign governments are buying influence with the country's politicians for nefarious purposes. And he's hoping to fix the problem.

    The question about espionage in Canada's halls of power came up while Fadden was testifying before a parliamentary committee on Monday. Senator Lynn Beyak wondered whether there's reason to be concerned over "foreign governments and other interests targeting prominent Canadian politicians," asking Fadden: "is it worse today because of the radicalization and the terror threat?"

          What possible secrets could Canada have?

          And if they did, who would care?
          Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            Maybe Glen Sather is looking into abducting Jonathan Toews and Drew Doughty.

                The irony of the PM adviser's remark about Canadian politicians being under foreign influence is that if anybody is under foreign influence it is the PM himself, specifically, that of American neo-conservatives. Nor is this a tightly-controlled secret.

                  ... Trudeau had the audacity to wrap himself in the Canadian Flag (the still new one) those same US neo-cons (they're ageless) swore they could see a hammer and sickle on it. I guess he and Maggie dropping by to see Fidel didn't help matters any.

                    This is not exactly the first time that foreigners have attempted to influence Canadian affairs.



                    How did Canadians defend their integrity from that insult?

                        The pompous fart was told in a very dignified speech by PM Lester Pearson that he was not welcome in Ottawa the next day unless he withdrew the "unacceptable" remarks, so he flew home. "It is not necessary for President De Gaulle to liberate the people of Quebec as they are already free" he told the country, alluding to Canada's involvement in the liberation of France.

                        Then Justice Minister Pierre Trudeau mischievously shouted "Brittany to the Bretons!" which caused a stir there and got Canada a little revenge.

                          An interesting, little known, side story to "Vive La Quebec Libre" is that Bobby Kennedy delivered the 1967 Convocation Address to the University of New Brunswick at the Lady Beaverbrook Rink in my home town of Fredericton. He started his address by shouting the words "Vive La Nouveau Brunswick Libre" (New Brunswick is 30% French). It was meant tongue in cheek and he explained that he asked his advisers to give him something to say here that would get a big reaction. It got a good laugh but that was all. He was following the tradition of his brother who delivered the 1958 convocation address.

                            My theory is that he just likes stirring it up with Canadians, it isn't hateful.

                              "...under foreign influence..." So the Canadian government is drinking foreign liquor?
