Torture Directive 2.0

By . Published on March 6, 2012
It seems that the Canadian government has learned nothing from the two $30-million torture inquires both of which recommended that the Canadian adopt a different approach…

Jim Bronskill from the Canadian Press published a follow-up story on the torture directive that was issued by the Minister of Public Safety Vic Toews. The new story speaks of a more recent directive (shown below) issued in July 2011. The new directive removes any ambiguity as to what the government position is with respect to the use and sharing of information that is likely derived from torture.

It seems that the Canadian government has learned nothing from the two $30-million torture inquires both of which recommended that the Canadian government adopt a different approach to dealing with foreign agencies that do not adhere to the same human rights standard as ours.

  • Anon:What a friggin Farce ! All that money spent ! …and for what??!! I’d sure like to see a detailed expenditure,..and what , if anything was accomplished. Hell, one man could have done it for under a hundred thousand with two secretaries,..corruption, corruption corruption,..

  • Anon: All of the republican presidential hopefuls support torture, except Ron Paul. WHAT HAVE WE COME TO? The End Game phase of a world fascism agenda of long standing. That’s what. FU** the MATRIX!!!

  • Anon: Anyone know how long we have had a “Minister of Public Safety” and why we even have one? Is this something that came out of 911? It seems to be something stemming out of paranoia and not any real need to me. This kind of negative thinking only serves to grow more negativity’ ie. things to be paranoid about, like free thought and free speech.

  • Anon:It appears as if you are on the right track Anon…Public Safety Canada (PS) was created in 2003 to ensure coordination across all federal departments and agencies responsible for national security and the safety of Canadians.

    From natural disasters to crime and terrorism, our mandate is to keep Canadians safe.
