In the diagram of the «Secret Government of Canada» (printed above in Section III), CSIS, the RCMP, and the Military are on the same level. It doesn't make sense, therefore, that the RCMP are getting their orders from CSIS, but from the body that controls all three organizations: the ultra-secret CSE (Communications Security Establishment). The fact that CSE has not been mentioned in any of the press stories suggests that we may take a more sinister interpretation of the so-called leaks. For the CSE controls not merely CSIS, the RCMP, the Military but would also seem to control THE PRESS?
We have, therefore, a DOUBLE AGENCY right at the pinnacle of power in this country, an agency that pretends to be constituted to protect national security, but which is using national security as a pretence to initiate a hidden agenda of their own.
Who is this CSE? Who created it? For what purpose?
Once again we are back to The Three Wise Men of Quebec and His Eminence Dubh: Mr. Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
The establishment of the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) by Trudeau in the late 1970's was so secret that Allan Lawrence, the Solicitor General of the succeeding Conservative Government, did not know of its existence until he enquired into the source of the information in one of his weekly information briefs. CSE and its Cray computer (the only other Cray computer in Canada is at the University of Toronto: see Professor O'Driscoll's Nato and the Warsaw Pact Are One) has enormous espionage capabilities:
CSE listens in to radio and telephone communications between embassies in Ottawa and their home countries, or between embassies and their consulates; monitors all national and international telephone calls; listens in to many foreign radio communications and reads the electromagnetic transmissions from embassy typewriters, word processors, etc. Jack Granatstein and David Stafford, Spy Wars, Toronto 1990, p.22).
So, in other words, as I am typing this article CSE has the capacity to monitor it, to send somebody to the door to interrupt it, to ... Furthermore, CSE's «activities, unlike those of CSIS, are not limited by parliamentary statute» (Toronto Star, 23 May 1992). I repeat: CSE's activities are not limited by parliamentary statute.
