Canada's new defence HQ bugged: Media
OTTAWA (AFP) - Electronic eavesdropping devices were reportedly discovered at a former high-tech company campus in Ottawa slated to become Canada's new military headquarters, but officials said on Tuesday no bugs were found.
The daily Ottawa Citizen reported that workers preparing the former Nortel complex for the Department of National Defence discovered the listening devices.
However, the newspaper added, it was not clear whether they were recently planted or left behind after industrial espionage targeting Nortel.
Broadcaster CTV, meanwhile, said the discovery has prompted the military to rethink its move from a downtown office tower complex to the campus on the outskirts of the city, due to security concerns.
