Stealing the Secrets of the Maple Leafers

By Todd
Canada, the United States' favorite neighbor, is experiencing and examining new threats of economic espionage from foreign trading partners. This is a blurb from Friday's (June 23, 2006) "Globe and Mail" online edition:

Both traditionally hostile and ostensibly friendly governments have engaged in such activity in Canada," CSIS says in a public report tabled in Parliament.
The document avoids pointing the finger directly at any one foreign power, but government sources have said that China is one of the biggest culprits, and that Beijing attempts to use expatriates, visiting scholars and business delegations to obtain economic intelligence and trade secrets.
The CSIS report says, "Despite strong warnings from the government of Canada, certain countries continue to use their intelligence services to manipulate and exploit expatriate communities in Canada."


We're relieved they're not reporting that they suspect the U.S. of stealing the NHL trade secret of winning The Stanley Cup as only U.S. teams have won the Cup since 1993. That secret is currently maintained in a locked vault in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Hope you're all having a good Monday.
