Thomas Quiggin

Thomas Quiggin, (M.A, C.D.) wrote the book “Eyewitness to Deceit” following his intelligence role in Freedom Convoy 2022. This role comprised of protective intelligence for convoy participants, first responders and the citizens of Ottawa.

The book outlines the campaign of lies used by the government and the media during the Convoy. The extent of the misinformation campaign suggests it was more akin to information warfare than it was a reasoned response to a citizen-government policy dispute.

Tom has been qualified as a court expert on terrorism and other subjects in three different court systems in Canada. This includes having testified on intelligence collection and reliability in federal court cases.

Tom was also a Senior Fellow at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He has 35 plus years of practical intelligence experience in a variety of positions.  These include the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Bank of Canada, the Canadian Armed Forces, the United Nations Protection Force in Yugoslavia, Citizenship, and Immigration Canada (War Crimes), the International War Crimes Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (The Hague), and the Privy Council Office of Canada.  He was also a qualified arms control inspector for the Conventional Forces in Europe Treaty and the Vienna Document. 

He has also testified to a Senate Committee on intelligence matters (The Kelly Commission 1998) and to the Air India Inquiry (2007) and provided testimony to the Special Senate Committee on Anti-terrorism (2010). 

He has also given training sessions for the Canadian Department of Justice as part of the special advocates program with the focus being on intelligence and evidence in terrorism cases.
