Concluding Thoughts

Looking back over the year, I would like to thank my predecessor as Commissioner, the Honourable Claude Bisson, O.C., who laid a strong foundation for the Office of the CSE Commissioner and from whom I inherited a superb staff and an organization well positioned to meet the challenges ahead. Thanks to this legacy, the transition between our tenures was smooth, and I was able to assume my responsibilities quickly and efficiently.

Based on my experience over the past nine months, I believe that my mandate and resources as Commissioner are adequate to discharge my legislated duties. I look forward to continuing the productive relationship established with the Minister, with CSE and with other government officials as we fulfil our respective roles in Canada's security and intelligence community.
