Just before Thanksgiving, the Supreme Court of Canada held two days of hearings regarding the fate of Mohamed Harkat, detained in prison and under house arrest for over a decade by a secret trial security certificate, the reasons for which he has never been allowed to know and challenge.

In fact, the eight judges of the Supreme Court disappeared to hold a secret hearing somewhere in Canada.
