OTTAWA, Oct 1 (LSN) – Solicitor General Andy Scott told the Associated Press this morning that the Federal Court and Ottawa have routinely approved past requests by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service for warrants allowing the agency to conduct extensive wiretaps on phone lines. The CSIS warrant is different from those granted to police in that the agency can listen in on other people without approval for the extra bugs. CSIS spokesman Marcia Wetherup noted that similar applications have been granted “numerous times” in the past.
