Spy agency helped feds prepare for protests on Enbridge approval

A newly-released memo shows Canada’s spy agency helped federal officials prepare for protests they anticipated around the approval of Enbridge’s BC pipeline.

The intelligence service document shows the government wanted to be ready with a proactive response after violent demonstrations in New Brunswick two years ago.

In the memo, the CSIS assistant director writes that discontent related to natural resource development is largely an extension of traditional concerns, and in B-C that relates to pipeline projects such as Northern Gateway.

Release of the material under a Freedom Of Information request comes amid concern about the spy agency’s information gathering about people who oppose natural resource projects.
