Public Record - Symposium on Counter-Terrorism and Civil Liberties (Part 3 of 3)


On March 5th, 2010, in Montreal, the Symposium on Counter-Terrorism and Civil Liberties gathered to engage in the ongoing public policy debate around the response of Western democracies to terrorist threats.

The conference's final panel reflected upon American influence on Canada's national security policies and laws. The speakers were Maher Arar (Canadian citizen detained for one year in his native Syria and tortured for suspected terrorist links), Edna Keeble (political science professor at St. Mary's University), and Simon Potter (national security lawyer).
