A panel of experts take part in a roundtable discussion on Canada–United States bilateral security and intelligence relations, Carleton University, Ottawa, Ont., January 29, 2007.
Audience members pose questions to the panellists, focusing on the report on December 12, 2006, by Dennis O’Connor, the commissioner of the Maher Arar inquiry. Mr Arar is a Canadian citizen who was detained in the U.S. and then deported to a Syrian prison on suspicion of terrorist involvement.
The panellists are Frederick Hitz (professor at the University of Virginia School of Law), Ronald Atkey (senior partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP), Robert Henderson (international security analyst at REA Health and Safety Consultants), and Nathalie Des Rosiers (dean of the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law).
This event is co-hosted by The Canada Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and by the Canadian Centre of Intelligence and Security Studies (CCISS) at Carleton University.
