A Podcast Called INTREPID

Discussing and debating Canadian national security law and politics

Ep 24 The Russians Are Coming

Intrepid Podcast is back! Today, Stephanie and Craig dig into the new CSIS export report on foreign influence, and riff off a Globe and Mail article containing warnings from a NATO expert predicting Russian interference in the 2019 federal election.  Our topic is influence operations, and then a closer look at who has been doing what in this space since the 2016 US elections, the Mueller indictments (and Craig still needs to learn how to pronounce Mr Mueller's name) as well as a march through the various legal responses in cyber influence activities in international and Canadian law. We weave in discussion of CSE's proposed active cyber mandate and international law questions arising from it, and end with a plug for this weeks National Security Crisis Law Simulation at Georgetown law school.  Go Team Canada!
