While our methods for reviewing CSE's activities have become more sophisticated and have allowed us to delve more deeply into the organization, our findings have not changed. Based on the results of our review and analysis, I am of the opinion that CSE has acted lawfully in the performance of its mandated activities during the 1998-99 review period. I am also satisfied that CSE has not targeted the communications of Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.
During 1998-99, I submitted three classified reports to the Minister of National Defence, bringing to seven the number of such reports submitted during my first mandate. These reports examined some aspect of CSE's sigint and its activities. None of my classified reports brought to the Minister's attention incidents of unlawful activity on the part of CSE.
