The agenda for a secret meeting between Canadian intelligence and security agencies and energy companies. These meetings happen on a regular basis.
Documents obtained under the Access to Information Act have revealed that federal agencies including the RCMP, CSIS, and CSEC regularly meet with energy stakeholders to discuss "national security, criminal intelligence, threat risk assessment and to share energy-related classified intelligence."
Topics outlined in an agenda obtained by the CBC
include "Aboriginal Protests and Occupations", "Vulnerabilitiy of Buried Pipelines to Explosive Attack", and "Domestic Terrorism."
When asked to comment on the meetings, former federal public safety minister Stockwell Day said the meetings are appropriate because there "activists who wouldn't have a conscience about using literally explosive means to make a political point."
Keith Stewart of Greenpeace disagrees saying the government has started protecting the issues of the oil and mining industries instead.
For his reaction, Daybreak host Andrew Kurjata spoke to Michel Juneau-Katsuya, a former senior intelligence officer with CSIS. He says these meetings are happening, and in his opinion should happen more often- although he would like to see less secrecy.
