The Canadian military’s counter-intelligence unit considered the yearly Valentine’s Day vigils for murdered and missing Indigenous women as a potential source for “extremism” and “civil unrest,” according to a document released to APTN National News.

UPDATE: A Facebook friend raises a good point. Our military is spying on Canadian citizens, on Canadian soil. Is that part of its mandate? Is it legal?
