CANSEC Ottawa Reports Since 2009

Since 2009 I have been reporting about protests against the large military-industrial complex show held annually in Ottawa called CANSEC.

"Canada's premier defence trade show" is hosted by the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI).

Don't confuse it with CANSec — the USA Central Area Networking and Security Workshop — or CanSecWest held in Vancouver. Both are about digital and computer security.
