Ex-diplomat: Canadians bedded by foreign spies

‘Sexspionage’ can cost millions

Recruiting prostitutes to steal secrets worth millions from businessmen and government officials is a fairly widespread practice in countries like China and Russia, former Canadian diplomat Brian McAdam warned at the Canadian Industrial Security Conference in Gatineau on Wednesday. And Canadians traveling abroad, he added, have so far been “as babes in the woods”–hardly aware of being targets. “Sexpionage is far more effective than any technological surveillance by satellite or anything else,” said McAdam. Spies often approach the men via social networks, to “get to know their targets” and gain their trust, he added, according to Postmedia News. In September, Conservative MP Bob Dechert made headlines when a romantic email exchange between him and a reporter at the Chinese state news agency Xinhua became public.

Ex-diplomat: Canadians bedded by foreign spies

  1. There is an old saying” A stiff p..k has no conscience..Harper had better get his act together with the likes of flirty Bob and the opposition who have plenty of confidential info should be investigated. Chow has been to China several times and so have many other opposition.The Chinese and Russians probably know every piece of legislation that is in the works.

    • “The Chinese and Russians probably know every piece of legislation that is in the works. ”

      Yeah; some of them probably know how to read Hansard.

    • Not sure how they’d hear it from Chow or any of the other opposition, when it comes out of left field for them, too.  Plus, Chow is a woman if you recall.  No stiff p..k.

  2. Seems unlikely anyone would still be pulling this old Cold War gimmick.

    Much easier to just hack our govt computers and get the whole story.

    • “Seems unlikely anyone would still be pulling this old Cold War gimmick.”

      Pulling an old Cold War Gimmick can be pretty effective, if the owner of said gimmick is privy to govt secr…. oh wait, you meant…. oh.

      • LOL good point!
