The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CanSIS) is one of the Five Eyes, an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. These countries are parties to the multilateral UKUSA Agreement, a treaty for joint cooperation in signals intelligence.[1]

Two plane 'crashes'

In 1990, a whistleblower tried to hand over all the information on two plane 'crashes' (South African Airways Flight 295 and Pan Am Flight 103), bribes, account numbers, who was killed and why to the Canadian Admin Consul, R. Adrian J. Brazeau, in Pretoria at the Consulate in August 1990.[2] Brazeau refused to keep the information after reading it as he stated, "anyone who has this information is a dead man."

Too sensitive

After the whistleblower escaped in October 1990, he tried to hand off to CanSIS, they wouldn't take the information either, stating it was "too sensitive."[3]
