| Hezbollah is still engaged in fundraising and other activities in Canada.
Secret reports from Canada’s intelligence establishment make the assertions several years after the government outlawed the Lebanese group as a terrorist entity.
The Toronto-based National Post newspaper, which used the Access to Information Act to attain copies of several secret intelligence assessments, reported that they were generated in response to last summer’s war between Israel and Hezbollah.
One of the heavily edited reports indicated that Hezbollah still has a presence in Canada and its “activities in Canada include fundraising, censored collection and the procurement of equipment.”
Using freedom-of-information legislation, Post reporter Stewart Bell has amassed what is probably the largest collection of terrorism-related Canadian intelligence documents in private hands.
