Ontario police forces share carding data with Mounties, CSIS

Ontario’s counterterrorism plan directs local and provincial police to share relevant information gleaned from street checks — or “carding” encounters — with Canada’s intelligence agency and the RCMP, according to the written plan reviewed by the Star.

Municipal police services “should ensure” that intelligence they gather “is shared regularly with key partners,” including the Criminal Intelligence Service Ontario, the Ontario Provincial Police’s anti-terrorism section, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the RCMP, according to the 2014 document — the most recent version of the plan — that was posted online by two small Ontario police services, then apparently removed.
