Tasking a military unit with essentially spying on your nation’s citizens is not something to be scoffed at. And this from an allegedly conservative government. One can only wonder what other governments around the world were getting up to at that time.
A shadowy Army unit secretly spied on British citizens who criticised the Government’s Covid lockdown policies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. They compiled dossiers on public figures such as ex-Minister David Davis, who questioned the modelling behind alarming death toll predictions, as well as journalists such as Peter Hitchens and Toby Young. Their dissenting views were then reported back to No 10.
The information was then used to orchestrate Government responses to criticisms of policies such as the stay-at-home order, when police were given power to issue fines and break up gatherings. It also allowed Ministers to push social media platforms to remove posts and promote Government-approved lines.
Julia Hartley-Brewer was another prominent target.
We need our own whistleblower(s) from CAF or CSE to let Canadians know what those devils in PCO and PMO were up to.
It doesn’t mater what colour is on the armband, war is the health of the state.
Don’t kid yourself.
This happened Everywhere.
Correction: This is Happening Everywhere.
Not just over the Kung Flu, but any kind of dissent or simple disagreement with the Rulers.
Think Juthtin the Bully-coward isn’t telling a more-than-willing branch of SpyOps to get anything and everything on his “enemies”. He probably knows the size of PP’s peepee.
And JTF2 was on the ground in Ottawa last year during the Bouncy Castle Rebellion.
A few years back when CanForces were accused of spreading propaganda for the Gov.. I believe it was Gen. Vance who allegedly put a stop to it.. A few months later, I messaged some one on FB something about the allegations in a joking manner, and seconds later on my “private” area a message popped up “would you like to speak to an Officer about this topic”?.. Rather freaked me out actually.. Wish I had taken it farther.
“And this from an allegedly conservative government.”
LOL Conservaderps did nothing but cheer on the surveillance state in the 2000s and never turned back. They only cared about the issue when it directly affects them, as usual.
How many years back does “echelon’ go?
The minions were spying on the protest in Ottawa,but they broke no laws,as the “American Trainers” did all the actual spying and remote activation of “targets” cellphones.
This is one of the gifts from Trump Derangement Syndrome..Domestic spying ,against citizens,without good reason and a warrant is generally illegal..
But if you get your buddies from “The 5 Eyes” to spy on your own citizens..well thats alright then..
As smart as having a Lethbridge City Policeman ,spying on gun buyers in Montana.
