Abstract:  The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) investigated the Labrador Innu community last winter as part of a nation-wide probe into native groups, a senior CSIS official has revealed. According to one man who was interviewed by CSIS, CSIS seemed to be trying to find out if the Innu had been infiltrated by Arab extremists. Raymond Boisvert, a senior CSIS official, said that the investigation was done for the federal Solicitor-General. He said that CSIS was "trying to get the pulse of native communities."
