Are Your Human Rights Safe in Canada?

Monday, December 10 is International Human Rights Day. And on this day three Canadians remain in prison in Iran. Are we safer here in Canada? A vast body of Canadian law has been developed that upholds the rights of individuals even in the face of the most heinous crimes. But in Canada, today, in light of the cases of Mohamed Harkat, Mohammad Mahjoub and Mahmoud Jaballah, if someone thinks you are a terrorist -- and someone said you are a terrorist even under torture -- you may be arrested, thrown in prison, or placed under house arrest, tried without knowing the evidence against you and then deported.
