It has long been clear that the NSA spying program is being used for industrial espionage, by spying onlarge foreign corporations, and the biggest financial payments systems such as VISA and Swift.  Indeed, in a slide leaked by Edward Snowden, “economic” was one of the main justifications for spying.

And it has long been known that the “Five Eyes” –  the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand – share their spying information amongst themselves.

So it should not come as a total surprise that other members of the Five Eyes – such as Canada – are also engaged in industrial espionage.

Specifically, documents leaked by Edward Snowden show that Canadian spies targeted Brazil’s Mines and Energy Ministry.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff rightly called it industrial espionage, and Brazilian foreign minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo expressed:

The government’s repudiation of this serious and unacceptable violation of national sovereignty and the rights of people and companies.

Keith Murphy, CEO of Defence Intelligence – an Ottawa-based information security company – said economic interests are at the root of the alleged espionage, and noted:

It’s scary a little bit the level of co-operation between the agencies.  Now we’ve got solid proof from some of the slides that were released to say that not only had Canada penetrated these systems, but they are actively sharing that data with the U.S.

Even the former head of the Canadian spy agency said that the agency needs more oversight.
