Aboriginal language speakers: Canada’s spy agency wants you!
If you can speak any of this country’s 65 or so Aboriginal languages, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) may have a job for you. According to an ad on their website, Canada’s spy agency is seeking “Translators / Interpreters – Foreign and Aboriginal Languages” who among other things, “possess an excellent ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines without a loss of efficiency or effectiveness.”
Here’s the ad.
Now I can’t say with any certainty why CSIS wants Aboriginal interpreters – and any explanation from them seems unlikely (they ARE a spy agency). But I do believe recruitment of this sort adds even more mistrust to an already nervous Indigenous peoples ‘activist’ community.
