PrimeTime Politics Weekend - February 23, 2007


Host Martin Stringer reviews the week’s headlines.

Martin interviews Matthew Webber (lawyer for Mohamed Harkat) about a Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of security certificates, which allow for the indefinite detention of terrorist suspects without charges being laid. Mr. Harkat (an Algerian refugee residing in Canada) was imprisoned on a federal security certificate in 2002.

A panel of MPs join Martin in the studio to discuss developments in the House of Commons, including the possible extension of controversial security measures in Bill C-36, Canada’s Anti-terrorism Act. The panellists are Fabian Manning (Conservative), Brian Murphy (Liberal), and Bill Siksay (NDP).

Martin sits down with journalists Janice Tibbetts and Norma Greenaway to discuss the week’s political news.
