Russian 'diplomats' leaving Canada

In the wake of last week's revelation of a spy in the Canadian Navy - a spy who is charged with selling to 'a foreign entity ...' - comes this news:
Four Russian diplomats expelled from Canada

According to CTV, Dmitry Fedorchatenko and Konstantin Kolpakov were sent back to Russia. The names of two other Russian citizens, who were involved in the story, have not been exposed. However, spokespeople for the Russian Embassy in Ottawa have not confirmed the information. They simply said that the diplomats returned to Russia because their missions expired.

It was reported this week that the Canadian authorities arrested naval officer Jeffrey Paul Delisle, whom the media nicknamed as the "Russian spy." The charges against Delisle were filed within the scope of the law about the security of information, which was passed in Canada soon after the 9/11 attacks in the USA. The officer may spend a life in prison...

Yep, there is more at Pravda here. It is in the Canadian media too, but it is always interesting to see how the rest of the world views CanCon.
