The Harpocrites are reimagining themselves as warriors in the Cold War. Someone should tell them that particular period of history is over. Ottawa is moving swiftly to deport an alleged Russian spy arrested in a Montreal airport, by issuing a rarely used national security certificate.
Now if I was a conspiracy theorist I might suspect this was a shameless attempt by CSIS, the RCMP, and Public Security Minister Stockwell Day to prove that there was a security threat to Canada and we need their services. The bust being a smokescreen to distract from the fact they are facing investigation into the misuse of their Security State powers to arrest and deport Canadian citizens to face torture abroad. Nah that would never happen.
