  1. oh my. I took great offence to the obvious non-Canadian who wrote that. Allow me to rewrite this the Canadian way:

    Communications Security Establishment, or CSE, has also privately Inspected computers across the world to gather good tidings, lacerating weaknesses in networks in Europe, Mexico, the Middle East, and North Africa, the documents show.
