Harper Government Will Argue In Federal Court That It Is Not Canada's Concern If Afghan Prisioners Are Tortured

Government lawyers will argue in Federal Court today, that Canada has NO responsiblity to ensure that prisoners we turn over to Afghan authorities are not tortured!

Human rights groups are currently challenging Canada's military policy on prisoner exchange. The position of the Conservative government will simply be that there is no burden on the Canada's military to prove detainees handed over to Afghan authorities will be well treated. As well, the government will argue that there is no legal responsibility for Canadian officials who decide there is no risk of torture but are later proven to be wrong.

No sir, once we've got'em safely in the boxcars, it's not our fault what happens at the end of the trainride. My God do we need a change of government.

This isn't my Canada. Sad.
