Friends of RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli are speculating that he is under a gag order from the Harper Conservative government! While Mr. Zaccardelli has recently been the victim of much criticism for the handling of the Arar affair, those close to him believe the Federal government will not allow him to speak openly on the matter.
To those who watch the Harper government closely, I pose this question: 'Are you surprised?' Clearly, our Conservative masters in Ottawa seem uncomfortable with an apology to Mr. Arar. The Globe and Mail online
