Ontario police forces share carding data with Mounties, CSIS

The province’s counterterrorism plan, reviewed by the Star, directs local police forces to

share intelligence gleaned from street checks with“key partners” including Canada’s spy

agency, raising fresh concerns about the use of personal information.

 

Ontario’s counterterrorism plan directs local and provincial police to share relevant information gleaned from street checks — or “carding” encounters — with Canada’s intelligence agency and the RCMP, according to the written plan reviewed by the Star.

 

Municipal police services “should ensure” that intelligence they gather “is shared regularly with key partners,” including the Criminal Intelligence Service Ontario, the Ontario Provincial Police’s anti-terrorism section, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the RCMP, according to the 2014 document — the most recent version of the plan — that was posted online by two small Ontario police services, then apparently removed.

 

“Front-line officers across Ontario have the unique opportunity to recognize, identify, collect and report on intelligence gathered through primary response duties, such as street checks, vehicle stops and criminal investigations,” the document states.

 

The 55-page Provincial Counter-Terrorism Plan — along with a “high”- priority memo from the assistant deputy minister in charge of the public safety division of the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services — was sent to all Ontario police chiefs, the OPP commissioner and police services boards on Oct. 22, 2014, following the attack on Parliament Hill earlier that day.
