A tale of two tortures

In the UK, there will be an inquiry into allegations that British-transferred Afghan detainees may have been tortured with the knowledge of at least some British officials.

Canadian officials face very similar allegations, yet what investigative act of transparency have we got? There’s no such thing forthcoming. Despite this, we’re still stuck with this.

It appears of late that it takes British political innovation to make Canadians think seriously about the same. That in mind, let’s hope this is a turning point for the Harper government’s parliament-defying, pseudo-legal obfuscation of the full Afghan detainee file.
