Earlier today, the Prime Minister’s Office had been punting questions on the matter—”We have no knowledge of these matters. CSIS directs its own operations. Questions should be directed to CSIS.”—and just now, Mr. Fadden has attempted to punt his own allegations of foreign interference in Canadian politics.
“I have not apprised the Privy Council Office of the cases I mentioned in the interview on CBC. At this point, CSIS has not deemed the cases to be of sufficient concern to bring them to the attention of provincial authorities. There will be no further comments on these operational matters.”
