Secrets upon secrets surround a hearing into allegations that Canada's spy agency kept tabs on environmental groups in an effort to suss out their anti-pipeline activities and may even have used moles to get the job done.

In a story worthy of a cloak-and-dagger spy thriller, the lawyer representing the groups was forbidden from discussing anything that took place at a restricted hearing of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service watchdog committee.

Josh Patterson, executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, which filed a complaint on behalf of several groups, said he was barred from sharing any information with his clients about his participation in the Vancouver hearing on Wednesday.
