The sheer volume of agents of influence that have been deployed—it’s just absolutely phenomenal.

OTTAWA—Agents of influence—spy lingo for those advocating the interests of a foreign country either unknowingly or surreptitiously—are among the most challenging elements CSIS has to deal with, so when a warning is issued it should be taken seriously.
That’s the advice of former security officer Michel Juneau-Katsuya, once the Asia-Pacific bureau chief for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. In an interview with the Epoch Times, Juneau-Katsuya said CSIS only makes such a warning when it has a preponderance of evidence and sees a necessity to act.
“CSIS will not come lightly and reveal something about an individual if it does not have tons and tons of evidence to demonstrate what we are talking about, because CSIS knows of the repercussions,” he said.
