Yes. Before I go, I would like to support what Ms. Brady has said. Exactly as she described, we observed it from the Chinese government right here in Canada in previous elections as well.
As for prosecution and the problem of investigating, first, it has increased. We see much more interference taking place. Many more agents of influence have gained very strategic positions at all three levels of government: municipal, provincial and federal.
When it comes to prosecution, one problem that exists is within our own system. Prosecution lies within the responsibilities of the RCMP. CSIS cannot prosecute, and unfortunately CSIS does not play well with the other kids in the schoolyard. They don't share information that well. They don't share information as they should be sharing information, and the RCMP has lost the ability to investigate spy activities because they have been out of the game since 1984 with the creation of CSIS.
We have to readjust this. The parliamentary committee on security and intelligence that was created is one way. The problem and the weakness is that every five years we have a new bunch of people on the committee, with a new bunch of analysts joining them.
