Okay, thank you.
Several years ago, you sounded the alarm about the importance of doing a better job of raising awareness among our university researchers and our research networks about potential infiltrations by foreign actors who, for example, have direct ties to the Chinese People's Liberation Army. Those people are on Canadian university campuses and are infiltrating research networks.
According to the “CSIS Public Report 2020”, activities have increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The report of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians, or NSICOP, also mentions that Canada has been the target of sustained and increased efforts by foreign actors, including China, Russia and Iran, over the past year.
How aware do you think networks of university researchers are of that threat posed by China, for instance?
