OTTAWA - Canada's spy agency is openly warning that Russia and China are out to steal the country's most prized secrets.

The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, which rarely identifies security threats by name, makes the frank statement in briefing notes prepared for service director Michel Coulombe.

While Canada grapples with the problem of jihadi-inspired extremists, the long-standing threat of espionage is also a worrisome preoccupation, the spy agency says in the notes.

"Russia and China, in particular, continue to target Canada's classified information and advanced technology, as well as government officials and systems."

The Canadian Press used the Access to Information law to recently obtain the briefing materials, intended for use by Coulombe at a March meeting of the Senate committee on national security and defence.

CSIS spokeswoman Tahera Mufti declined to elaborate on specific aspects of investigations, but she emphasized the spy service's broad concerns.

"Canada remains a target for the traditional espionage activities of a number of foreign states, which continue to gather political, economic, and military information in Canada through clandestine means," she said.

"States and other entities abroad have interests — political, economic and territorial — and will pursue those interests by a variety of means. Some will do so through espionage and interference, targeting the Canadian economy, strategic interests and assets, societal institutions and members of the diaspora."

Western security officials have stressed in recent years that old-fashioned spying has continued to thrive in the post-Cold War era — with occasional public flareups serving as pointed reminders.

Three years ago, junior Canadian navy officer Jeffrey Delisle was sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to passing classified western intelligence to Russia in exchange for cash on a regular basis for more than four years.

More recently, U.S. officials blamed Moscow for pilfering Democratic Party emails that proved embarrassing to presidential contender Hillary Clinton when published by WikiLeaks. Russia has denied involvement.

Upon reviewing the CSIS notes, Kirill Kalinin, a spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Canada, acknowledged that "information gathering is a vital component of national security of any state."

But Kalinin strongly suggested the United States is the global snooper to be worried about.

After the widely publicized revelations of Edward Snowden, a former American spy contractor, it is no secret that the U.S. National Security Agency's capabilities are "unmatched in imposing surveillance on a global scale" through the bugging of electronic devices and eavesdropping on even the closest allies, Kalinin said.

Two years ago, the Canadian government squarely blamed a highly sophisticated, Chinese state-sponsored actor for an intrusion into the National Research Council's networks that resulted in a shutdown of the research agency's information-technology system for an extended period.

Beijing denied leading the attack and accused Canada of making irresponsible allegations.

In October last year, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying flatly declared that Beijing opposes all forms of cyberattacks and commercial espionage.

"This position is firm," she said. "The Chinese government will neither encourage companies to carry out cybertheft for commercial secrets, nor take part in such activities."

Liberals approve Trans Mountain, Line 3 pipeline projects

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is approving Kinder Morgan's proposal to triple the capacity of its Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby, B.C. - a $6.8-billion project that has sparked protests by climate change activists from coast to coast.

Trudeau is also effectively killing the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline across northern British Columbia, but giving a green light to Enbridge's lesser-known $7.5-billion Line 3 pipeline expansion from Alberta to Wisconsin.

Не - обе трубы уже существующие. Будут в одном случае (Enbridge) трубу менять, а во втором (Kinder Morgan ) рядом еще одну пускать. Объемы экспорта (в 2 и 3 раза, c 390,000 до 760,000 и c 300,000 до 890,000 barrels per day соответственно) наращивать. А в Висконсине (Superior) - одно из самых больших нефтехранилищ-терминалов в Штатах находится.

In its seventh annual report on global wealth levels, the Swiss Bank said there are currently 1,117,000 millionaires in Canada, which the bank defines as someone worth $1 million US when you add up all assets and subtract debts.

Ничего не перепутали - ключевая фраза - all assets - т.е. из 32 (или скока там сейчас) миллионов канадцев 1 миллион с хвостиком живет в даунтаунах или других зачетных местах в квартирах / хаузах стоимостью более лимона с выплачеными моргиджами (хотя, возможно, некоторые из них посещают фудбанки).

по-моему, уже нет, но не исключено, что их номинальный баланс можно перенести на компас. хотя могу и ошибаться, забыл уже, как оно там было сформулировано. мне перенесли.

The average Canadian family may need to dish out as much as $420 more for food next year — and consumers could have president-elect Donald Trump to thank for part of the price bump, the lead author of a new report says.

Canada's Food Price Report, published by researchers at Dalhousie University in Halifax, was released Monday evening.

The annual report, which looks ahead to 2017, cites weather disruptions caused by La Nina, energy-related costs — including the potential effect of carbon pricing on the agricultural sector — and a weak Canadian dollar as factors in the expected price hikes.

Economists forecast the loonie could fall as low as 70 cents US in 2017, and a weaker dollar would reduce the buying power of importers.

"Everything we actually import from everywhere will increase in price," says Sylvain Charlebois, lead author of the report.

Families could pay up to $420 more for food in 2017, report finds
