Watchdog dismisses environmental spying complaint, prompting appeal

OTTAWA — A federal watchdog has dismissed a complaint from a civil liberties group alleging Canada’s spy agency overstepped the law while monitoring environmental activists.

The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association is now asking the Federal Court to toss out the Security Intelligence Review Committee’s decision.

The association filed a complaint with the review committee in 2014 after media reports suggested the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and other government agencies considered opposition to the petroleum industry as a threat to national security.
