Canadian Intelligence Officer Pleads Guilty to Spying for Russia

A former Canadian naval intelligence officer has pleaded guilty to spying for Russia for several years. Sub Lt Jeffrey Delisle admitted selling Canadian and Nato intelligence to Russia for $3,000 (£1,875) a month. He worked at top secret Canadian naval military facilities and had clearance to intelligence-sharing systems linked to countries such as the US and UK. For nearly four years he copied secret information onto memory sticks to share with his handlers in Moscow. He apparently walked into the Russian embassy in Ottawa in 2007 to volunteer his services, and was arrested in January, 2012.
