The United States, Russia, China, France and Britain all have intelligence agencies that spy on the country they belong to.
The three largest spy agencies are the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Canada, Australia and New Zealand have their own spy agencies.
Most Canadians would like to see Canada and Australia put more effort into defending the country against the threat of terrorism.
However, there is an argument for more intelligence sharing between the countries.
“I think Canada and the U.K. have some really good intelligence,” said Robert O’Brien, a former U.S. intelligence official who now teaches at the University of Calgary.

and the UK “cooperate fully.”
“We’ve made a commitment to the U of A and the British people,” Johnson said.
“We will continue to work closely with the U.”
Canada and the United Kingdom also have a long history of close cooperation on intelligence.
Canada has shared intelligence on ISIS with the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, and in July, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that Canada would provide $1 billion to the Saudi government to fight terrorism.
In 2016, Canada provided Saudi Arabia with $1.3 billion in military aid, including $600 million to buy advanced weapons systems, as part of a deal that saw the U.:S.
cooperate on intelligence-sharing.
Although the United Nations Security Council recently approved the establishment of an International Criminal Court, Canada remains one of the U.;S.
