Here’s another way to leak nuclear secrets.

Not do be outdone by the U.S. Government Printing Office, which recently published a “highly confidential” list of U.S. Nuclear sites the Canadian government had a nuclear leak of its own this week, according to the CTV, the Canadian TV network that had the good fortune of having the documents left behind at one of its bureaus.Reports the CTV:The binder of documents was left nearly a week ago at CTV’s Ottawa bureau by either Minister of Natural Resources Lisa Raitt or one of her aides. Some of the papers are clearly marked “secret.”Whatever the story, the aide took the fall. and resigned today. She is 26 year old PR staffer Jasmine MacDonnell, who is surely not having a good week.Raitt offered to resign too, but the Prime Minister reportedly said no.Just goes to show, that it doesn’t take much to leak sensitive information.
