The Crown corporation Ontario Power Generation (OPG) claims that one of its former employees is the person who was arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) under a national security law.

The RCMP announced last week that it had arrested an individual who allegedly communicated protected information to a foreign entity or terrorist group with the intent to endanger critical infrastructure .

The Public Prosecution Service of Canada says the person is charged with contravening the Act on the protection of information.

OPG, which operates two nuclear power plants, says in a written statement that the person is a former employee.

The press release indicates that its nuclear power plants use sophisticated security and intelligence technologies and that, once they detected an information breach, OPG and the RCMP prevented any further unauthorized disclosure.< /p>LoadingAccess to CPE for asylum seekers: Quebec will turn to the Supreme Court
