    This information is EYES ONLY.

    The National Intelligence and Security Agency is Canada’s elite intelligence service. It is responsible for collecting, analyzing, reporting and disseminating intelligence on threats (real and imagined) to the nation as well as conducting covert (and overt) operations within Canada and internationally. It also engages in covert operations at the request of the Prime Minister and her majesty the Queen. Headquartered in Ottawa, NISA is responsible to Parliament, the Minister of Public Safety and the Department of Sanitation.

    NISA was formed during the War of 1812 to coordinate espionage activities behind enemy lines. It’s a little-known historical face [sic] that NISA, in this early incarnation, was responsible for the famous “burning down of the White House” during that conflict. It’s an even littler-known fact that said incident wasn’t actually deliberate.In later years, NISA’s mandate was expanded to include tracking down foreign agents in Canada, and performing various espionage related activities including intelligence gathering, at home and abroad, sabotage, anti-sabotage, anti-anti-sabotage, demolition, and subversion of and assistance to (often at the same time), underground resistance movements and guerrillas (but not gorillas, except that once).

    A lot of real laugh out loud moments in this show, with similar flights of absurdity that fans of Corner Gas would recognise. played with deadpan earnestness. Would not be out of place on American television.


    OMG my former student Raoul Bhaneja is on it! (He took his first acting classes from me.) icon_biggrin.gif
