I will open and then ask my colleague to follow up.
The relationship with CSE is not that complex, actually. They were a part of our department not so very long ago. When their act was originally created, they were mandated in their act to support other government security agencies with their capabilities, let's say. I can expand on their capabilities; that gets us into a different conversation. I can tell you that those capabilities would be very valuable to us in cyber. I don't think the government wants National Defence to create the equivalent capabilities inside of its institution, so we've been directed to work with CSE so that we come together as a team. We would deploy and operate in cyber as a team, because they have the capabilities.
However, when their act was created, National Defence was not named as an agency they could support, ironically. They were us, so there was no need to put defence in that legislation. I think some of the amendments happening in that bill will help remediate the legislative policy layer, if you will, to allow us to work together more actively. That's one part of your question. I really wanted to explain that we will move forward in cyber as a team as soon as we're able to.
To the other part of your question, as of the current day, in terms of day zero capabilities in cyber, we have limited cyber capabilities in the active cyberspace today that we could, without CSE, engage and use to support mission. I wouldn't want to give you the impression that we could provide extensive cyber capabilities that would be of concern to Canadians, but the ability for us to jam a radio, block a telephone, take an Internet site down, or block a service provider are things we are evolving quickly in order to support mission.
