CSIS Director's Remarks about Canadian Politicians and Senior Civil Servants Influenced by PRC Intelligence Services

Mr. Fadden did obliquely but clearly allude to the PRC, but I did not hear him suggest that the politicians and civil servants he is accusing of disloyalty to Canada are of Han ethnicity.  But Mr. Fadden has cast suspicion on all provincial cabinet ministers by suggesting that there are 2 of them that are influenced by the PRC Ministry of State Security.  Casting this sort of unsupported aspersion is unacceptable and reminiscent of McCarthyism in the US in the 50s.  So CSIS should either withdraw the insinuation completely with a full apology and Mr. Fadden's resignation or refer the matter to the RCMP for investigation so that the accused can defend themselves properly in a court of law.
