Canadian Extradition and Secret Trials

Check out a report on Dr. Hassan Diab’s extradition case by Lia Tarachansky of The Real News Network.

Canada is in a position where it always wants to kowtow to larger or more established nations. So it becomes a question not will we jump but how high will we jump, and how much do we have to bend over backwards to accommodate. In fact, never in the history of Canada have we prosecuted in Canada rather than sending people back to face prosecution in a foreign country.
