Quick Hits – Episode 207: Why bother have an intelligence service when it is ignored?
Canada has a woefully inadequate intelligence culture and that undermines the efforts of the women and men who work in national security.

Borealis looks at the egregious behaviours of senior intelligence officers and the inability of government officials to use intelligence properly.
