Statement from CSIS
On December 4, 2015, CSIS held a public event on airport security preclearance entitled, "Cleared in Canada: Expediting Passengers to Strengthen U.S. Security and the Economy." The purpose of the event was to look at the policy dimensions of expedited security procedures. The event was moderated by a CSIS non-resident affiliate rather than a CSIS employee. CSIS conducts over 1500 public events each year, with very few hosted by non-CSIS employees. When CSIS agreed to host the event, sponsored by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority and Air Canada, we misunderstood the nature of the relationship that existed between the moderator of the event and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. This constituted a lapse in oversight from CSIS. Given our stated policies regarding ethics and transparency, CSIS has decided to refuse to accept any funding for this event and to post this public notice that this event did not meet our standards of transparency and integrity. CSIS's reputation is based on independent, bipartisan policy judgment. This reputation has been built over decades of honest analysis. Part of holding ourselves to high standards is recognizing when we have fallen short.

Two key components of “twenty-first century trade agreements” are disciplines on intellectual property rights (IPR) and the role of state-owned enterprises (SOEs). However, trade negotiators have given scant attention to government-sponsored patent pools (GSPP).
