Mr. Speaker, as I have now stated a number of times in the House, CSEC is prohibited by law from directing its activities toward Canadians, or directing its activities at any person in Canada. The only targeting that is done, and the member, as a former member of the Canadian Armed Forces would know this, is on foreign intelligence. We work with our allies, but as I stated yesterday, we do not have access to the PRISM data and we use metadata to identify and collect international, not domestic, communications.
In the House of Commons on June 11th, 2013. See this statement in context.
