The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reports its electronic spy agency collected data from travellers passing through a major airport.


The report says The CSEC collected information captured from unsuspecting passengers' wireless devices by the airport's free wi-fi system over two-weeks.


The revelations come from documents leaked by Edward Snowden.


The CSEC is prohibited by law from targeting Canadians or anyone in Canada without an appropriate warrant.


Its primary mission is to collect foreign intelligence by intercepting overseas phone and internet traffic.
