Canada: Beware of Darkness

“Watch out now, take care

Beware of greedy leaders

They take you where you should not go

While weeping atlas cedars

They just want to grow, grow and grow

Beware of darkness (beware of darkness)”

Canada puts US, Israel on torture watch list, then retracts

But, given swhat Canada allowed to happen to one of its own citizens, Maher Arar, perhaps Canada itself should be on the torture watch list.

The Horrors of Extraordinary Rendition:

Inasmuch - after Rembrandt - Meher Arar

From the page: “TORONTO . January 15, 2007. Despite an Eastern Ontario snowfall that delayed the appearance of his counsel, Barbara Kulaszka , for an hour and a half. M arc Lemire walked out of Federal Court in Toronto today a happy man. By sheer persistence, he had wrung out of the Canadian Human Rights Commissions some amazing admissions. At least one investigator for the Canadian Human Rights Commission has adopted a false Internet persona and trolled the Internet engaging in conversations with prospective victims. In other words, the CHRC is spying on Canadians, not observing and investigating, but participating and instigating.”

Hate, brought to you by the Canadian government.

    Great diary!  I had read about Canada putting the US & Isreal on the torture watch list but not about them retracting it.

    Interesting.

    How are you? and it’s good to see you…

    OPOL, have you met Kris? She’s started doing videos…you are both so inventive and do such beautiful work, I think you should talk about making videos – perhaps together.

    Edger and I have been busy at http://sanchopress.com – great fun, though the purpose is serious. Please come see.

    They also gave us Bryan Adams, Neil Young, Aldo Nova (“Life is just a Fantasy”), and Andy Kim (“Rock Me Gently”), Canada’s version of Neil Diamond. Others?
