We, Canadians, have long had an inside joke about how closely related we are to our America cousins due to strong bonds on many levels. Our shorthand version of expressing it is usually by saying if America sneezes we catch the cold.
There was a prime example yesterday. In Canada the equivalent of the NSA is the CSEC. Who in their right mind would deny that the NSA is "feeling the heat" right now? Yet it was the CSEC that caught on fire!
Firefighters extinguish flames at top-secret spy facility in Ottawa. The building is the future headquarters for the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) [o.canada.com...]
I also learned yesterday, not through that article, that the CSEC has even less Parliamentary oversight than their American and British counterparts, hmmmmmmm.
But, based on that incident, it can now be said that in addition to the cold, we now catch the heat too -- tongues of fire in the "roof"! -- keep calm, carry on ;)
P.Sssssss: I'm playing mind games with the NSA children and their "Messiah" program. They're bored listening to Hollywood chatter on Twitter. Their geeky autistic-like minds need something entertaining and challenging to chew on until their bosses and our bosses iron out this mess. So as a footnote the CSEC building name is internally known as Camelot. Clue: think of King Arthur's Sword that was embedded in stone.
