Instead of being punished, many of the officials responsible for America's torture program have been advanced to positions of even greater power.
Ralph Goodale's series of new memos defy the absolute prohibition on torture. This is immoral and foolish, given how Canadian citizens have been treated and the deserved payouts they have received

What follows is a cautionary tale that, despite all the assurances by the RCMP that they would never consider protests to be terrorism under C-51, this remains standard operating procedure.
The wording and delivery of the Trudeau government's March apology for its role in the torture of Canadian citizens are clear indications that Ottawa is not willing to make much-needed changes.
