Canadian Activists Sue RCMP Over Infiltrators

RCMP informants Environmental protest groups, including the indigenous / first nations movement Idle No More, have filed suit against the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) for illegally monitoring activists. The existence of spies within anti-pipeline organizations was confirmed last November by documents obtained by the Vancouver Observer under Canada’s Access to Information Act. The documents were redacted in a manner that obscured the sources of police intelligence information. Hopefully this lawsuit will reveal the individuals who have been providing information to the police.
