Canadian Detainee Fracas: Useful Links

According to the Canadian Press:

The House of Commons has voted in favour of holding a judicial inquiry into the treatment of Afghan detainees, but the majority motion will likely be ignored by the governing Conservatives….

Lots of folks already commenting on it, so I’m still going to mull a bit.

Meanwhile, some links and info of interest to share.

Wording of the motion:

That, in the opinion of the House, the government should, in accordance with Part I of the Inquiries Act, call a Public Inquiry into the transfer of detainees in Canadian custody to Afghan authorities from 2001 to 2009.
