Scrums - February 7, 2012


NDP justice critic Jack Harris, interim Liberal leader Bob Rae, Bloc Québécois justice critic Maria Mourani, and NDP deputy justice critic Françoise Boivin spoke to reporters about the federal government's directive to CSIS that the use of information that may have been obtained through torture is acceptable in cases where there is a threat to human life or public safety.

Rae, Mourani, and Boivin also reacted to the comments made by Conservative MP Larry Miller during the debate in the House of Commons on the long-gun registry. Miller compared Liberal support for the registry to the policies of Adolf Hitler. He made the references while quoting former Liberal senator Sharon Carstairs and former Liberal minister Allan Rock. The Conservative MP apologized for his comments after question period.
