The Canadian International Council – Vancouver, in partnership with the Canadian Association of Security and Intelligence Studies (CASIS) will host a dynamic discussion assessing the value of Canada’s international intelligence-sharing agreements, and Canada’s evolving intelligence accountability arrangements. Speaking on the subject will be Colin Freeze, an investigative reporter with The Globe and Mail, specializing in government, police, spy services, and the judiciary. Mr. Freeze has twice been to Afghanistan to be embedded with the Canadian military. A graduate of Journalism from Carleton University, he continues to write about issues relating to state surveillance and digital privacy.

Mr. Freeze’s experience and viewpoints will almost certainly provoke a lively discussion at the TAPshack Coal Harbour, 1199 West Cordova Street (at Bute). Located on the seawall, in Harbour Green Park. Doors will open at 5:00 pm and the conversation will start at 5:30 pm, followed by Q&A with the audience.
