Hamilton man's 4-year complaint against CSIS dismissed

After a four-year battle with CSIS, Canada's national security agency, a Hamilton man's complaint has been rejected by the committee responsible for the agency's public oversight.

In January, 2012, Ken Stone wrote an editorial published in the Hamilton Spectator titled "Harper is wrong in demonizing Iran."

Stone wrote "Iran lives in peace with its neighbours and, unlike the U.S., hasn't attacked any country in over 200 years. It is developing nuclear energy to produce electricity because its oil reserves will run out in 20 years."

In January of 2013, two people knocked on the door of Stone's Hamilton Mountain home, identifying themselves as CSIS agents and said they were aware of an October 2011 trip he made to Iran to attend a conference on Palestinian human rights.
