The discussion with Glenn Greenwald was followed by a moderated Q&A by journalist Jesse Brown.
Greenwald is a Pulitizer-prize winning American journalist, lawyer, and author, who is best known for his extensive reporting on the Edward Snowden NSA documents. His reporting exposed how spy agencies like Canada’s CSEC and the U.S. NSA are conducting invasive surveillance of law-abiding citizens on a massive scale. Greenwald has worked with the CBC to reveal how CSEC monitored thousands of innocent Canadian air travellers, spied on Brazil’s mining ministry, and facilitated a large U.S. spying operation on Canadian soil.
