The National Security Agency and its Canadian counterpart carried out spying operations during the G8 and G20 summits in Toronto, according to a new report.
CBC News reported Wednesday that the NSA, which “closely coordinated” operations with the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CESC), used the American embassy in Ottawa as a command post for the six-day spying operation, which lasted while President Obama and 25 other heads of state were on Canadian soil.
A spokesman for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said “We do not comment on operational matters related to national security” when reached late Wednesday by the Associated Press.
