A former national security expert believes the Canadian federal government should be concerned about the recent revelation involving the CIA's surveillance practices, The Canadian Press reports. Carleton University’s Stephanie Carvin said Canadian material could be exposed following the data dump, as Canada and the U.S. are both members of a five-country group of intelligence-sharing countries known as the “Five Eyes.” The leak could result in the disclosure of the tools and methods Canadian intelligence agencies use to conduct surveillance. “Because of the sharing between the Five Eyes, if Canada is using some of those tools, yes, our capabilities would be hurt as well,” Carvin said. “Secondly, if for some reason, they’ve been able to get access to some of our documents through Five Eyes sharing, then even some of our methods could be released as well. But we don’t know what they have.”
