That shut down its operations on the 5,500 mile pipeline causing gas prices to soar. Could a similar attack happen in Canada? How vulnerable is the country's critical infrastructure to attack? And is the Canadian government taking the escalating cyber threat seriously enough? The Agenda examines cyber threat in Canada.
