A Podcast Called INTREPID

Discussing and debating Canadian national security law and politics

Ep 15 One Warrant to Rule Them All and in the Federal Court Bind Them (or Not)

Stephanie and Craig lift their eyes from their piles of grading and launch into a discussion of today's new ministerial directions on information-sharing and mistreatment, issued for the Department of National Defence (including CSE) and Global Affairs Canada. And then they bravely go where no podcast ever should: into a discussion of warrants, production orders and four important new cases on wiretaps and data intercepts. Two Federal Court cases involving CSIS intercepts and two Supreme Court cases involving text messages. Together these cases show how Charter search and seizure rules are grappling with the new technological age. And then Craig goes on a bit about how chaotic our lawful access rules are. This episode definitely warrants eggnog and brandy.
