An activist, described as Canada's highest threat, has reportedly been arrested in Quebec City and has mysteriously disappeared.
Jaggi Singh featured in a Scoop pre-APEC special edition in 1999. Scoop published an exclusive account of Singh's activities and how he had become a target of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Singh later visited New Zealand as a guest of the APEC Monitoring Group in Sept 1999, and then toured the country.

Last week Singh was snatched by plainclothes police in Quebec City at the anti-FTAA protest.

"Canada's Highest Threat"... His tale reads like a scene out of the Frederick Forsyth book “The ODESSA File”. But while what you read here is cloak and dagger, it is not fiction. Published on Scoop for the first time in New Zealand is Jaggi Singh’s account of what Canada’s mainstream press called a "political kidnapping". Code Name: "Operation Mandible." Setting: Vancouver. Date: November 1997.
