Canada's watching you:
As Canadian security agencies scrambled to arrest an alleged Russian spy this month, President Vladimir Putin landed by helicopter atop the new $400-million headquarters for one of his country's intelligence agencies.
Inspecting the palatial building northwest of Moscow, he reportedly paused to fire a few pistols in the built-in firing range, before proudly pronouncing it “the best-equipped complex that any intelligence agency in any country has.”
Halfway around the world in Montreal's Trudeau Airport, authorities were keeping a lookout for an ostensible Canadian citizen by the name of Paul William Hampel. He had been flagged as an “illegal” and a serious threat to national security.
His arrest, based on information gathered by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, amounts to a clear message from Ottawa to Russia and other spying nations: We're watching you and we know what you're doing.
I think I speak for everyone when I say, "People are spying on Canada?"
