RCMP Spied on Tommy Douglas For Three Decades

From Canadian Press

OTTAWA -- RCMP spies shadowed Tommy Douglas, the fabled Prairie politician, for more than three decades, from his early days as a young firebrand through a tumultuous tenure as NDP leader.

A newly declassified file on Douglas shows the Mounties surreptitiously attended the witty orator's speeches, dissected his published articles and, during one Parliament Hill demonstration, eavesdropped on a private conversation.

Tip of the hat to Left Coast Rant

This really shouldn't surprise anyone older than say 25 or 30.
