Civil liberties watchdog concerned the RCMP has informants in B.C. anti-pipeline groups | Georgia Straight, Vancouver’s News & Entertainment Weekly

The Straight previously reported that the complaints rest on information contained in a package of emails sent between RCMP officers, CSIS agents, and government entities such as the National Energy Board between December 2012 and April 2013.Now, Paterson is calling attention to the significant portions of those documents that authorities redacted before releasing them to the Vancouver Observer in November.In a telephone interview, Paterson told the Straight that the information he’s most interested in was blacked out under section 16 of the Access to Information Act, which pertains to the identity of confidential sources of informations.He explained that the context of some sections withheld indicates that the RCMP likely has informants or intelligence officers placed within anti-pipeline groups such as Idle No More.
