OTTAWA - The ministerial watchdog over the Canadian Security Intelligence Service has warned the government of "deeply concerning" inaccuracies in CSIS's work — errors that could have serious "negative consequences" for people the spy agency investigates.
In her latest top-secret report card on CSIS to the public safety minister, Eva Plunkett reveals a "notable increase" in errors spotted in the spy service's records and a "substantially larger number" of cases of policy breaches.
Plunkett uncovered dozens of instances of failure to adhere to CSIS policy and 43 errors in operational reporting. <a href=http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/canada/breakingnews/spy-watchdog-growls-over-deeply-concerning-mistakes-by-csis--94871884.html>continued</a>
