Canadian Security Intelligence Service Dept:
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has quietly told CSIS the government now expects the spy service to "make the protection of life and property its overriding priority.", according to CTV. It drew swift condemnation from Amnesty International Canada, which said information obtained under torture "has no place in the justice system, full stop." The order represents a reversal of policy for the Conservative government, which once insisted the Canadian Security Intelligence Service would discard information if there was any inkling it might be tainted. A copy of the two-page December 2010 directive was obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
