“It is not an idiosyncratic jump to suggest that the use of the Security Certificate scheme today is akin to the use of internment by governments during the first and second world wars.”
Lost in this latest governmental slippage on its own banana peel is any effort to look at the substance of a recent Supreme Court decision. Instead, the tendency has been to keep a scorecard of the wins and losses by the government, as if this was a sporting event rather than large commentaries on the future of our country.

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Steelworkers Hall, 125 Cecil St
Join us for an intimate dinner with Mr. Mohammad Mahjoub, a security certificate detainee. For 14 years and still counting, Mr. Mahjoub has been imprisoned and kept under house arrest in Canada without charge. At this rare evening event, Mahjoub will share with guests a menu of traditional food from his homeland Egypt and stories of his continued struggles against the human rights’ violations of the Canadian security certificate.
The dinner is a fundraiser to help Mr. Mahjoub raise funds to cover the costs of his ongoing battle for freedom and status in Canada.
Food catered by Toronto’s beloved Egyptian restaurant Baba Geddo.
TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLINE AT:
(due to seating requirements, tickets will not be sold at the door)
Presented by the Justice for Mahjoub Committee.
Sponsored by the Steelworkers Hall, the Christian Peacemakers Team and OPIRG York.

CPTnet, 30 April 2014
On 18 April 2014, some three hundred people participated in the annual Ecumenical Good Friday Walk for Justice by leaving the Church of the Holy Trinity in downtown Toronto under grey skies and light rain, and walking to several ‘stations’ in the city that represent environmental or social injustices.
At a plain grey multi-story building—the location of Federal Courtrooms—fourteen Toronto CPTers led the crowd in a responsive reading prepared by CPTer Peter Haresnape, praying for the opening of our eyes, hearts, hands, borders, and society with respect to the unholy security state’s hidden agenda of racism and Islamophobia.
