Intelligence expert says Canadian Forces may be preparing for more missions without American help Canada’s elite special forces are looking for some outside intelligence advice — a move that one expert said is likely meant to make the highly-trained special forces section less dependent on allies, notably the Americans. A request for proposals was posted late last week to the federal government’s tendering website asking private contractors to submit bids to become a “senior intelligence” adviser to the special forces, which undertake some of the military’s most secret and dangerous missions. The individual will be expected to “aid and support in the implementation of current intelligence projects, and the design and implementation of future capabilities.”
