Green Leader Elizabeth May says no list of disloyal MPs in full spy watchdog report

OTTAWA — Green Party’s Elizabeth May says she believes the small number of MPs named in a recent spy watchdog report did not knowingly set out to betray Canada.

May says today she is “vastly relieved” after reading an unredacted version of a report on foreign interference by the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians.

The intelligence watchdog said in a public report last week that some MPs wittingly assisted the efforts of foreign states to meddle in Canadian politics.

May says the full version of the report does not contain a list of MPs who have been disloyal to Canada.

May says one former MP accused in the report of proactively sharing privileged information with a foreign operative should be fully investigated by authorities.

She says that former MP is not named in the full report.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 11, 2024.
