"CSIS and RCMP representatives should be asked, among other things, if they are prepared to apologize for the ways in which their agencies contributed to the detention and torture of Canadian citizens."

Open to the public.
But...Will accountability come out of the hearings?Are RCMP/CSIS prepared to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Are they prepared and willing to take responsibility for their acts?
Are they going to make accountable, on an individual basis, those who deliberately betrayed Canada and Canadians by getting into the “dark side” and covering up crimes?RCMP/CSIS and others, at this point, stand side by side with secret services and police forces in criminal dictatorships, keeping criminal insiders protected for “national security” reasons . None of them have any moral standing to point fingers at criminals. Hopefully some accountability will come out of these hearings. If not, God Help Canada!
