Judge raps Canada spy agency for data collection abuse

The head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service said he agreed with a court ruling that the spy agency had held onto sensitive data beyond the time frame allowed by court warrants. CSIS director Michel Coulombe ordered all access to information dating back as far as 2006 to be denied while the agency assesses the legal impact of the decision and determines how best to move forward. “I regret that we did not meet our duty of candor to the court and I commit to continuing my efforts with the deputy minister of justice to address this concern,” CSIS director Coulombe told a press conference.
