With Professor Wesley Wark. Professor Wesley Wark is currently a senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Waterloo, where he is leading a project on re-imagining Canadian national security strategy. He is one of Canada’s leading authorities on national security and intelligence issues. During his wide-ranging talk, he will discuss Canada’s intelligence efforts, speak about the role of Canada’s various intelligence and security agencies, discuss our involvement in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance and describe the challenges of countering foreign espionage services, protecting our secrets and the costs of betrayal. In particular, Professor Wark will discuss three recent cases involving real and alleged betrayals of Canadian secrets: the cases of Jeffery Delisle, Quentin Huang and Cameron Ortis.
