“Political policing in Canada has long underminded the democratic nature of this country. Lawyers acting in immigration, citizenship, criminal and other cases know that concepts like ‘national interest,’ ‘disloyalty,’ and ‘security threat’ are used as barriers to prevent public scrutiny of official decisions made in secret. This book fills in details of this sordid history, and makes valuable contributions to understanding the problem.”
“Whose National Security? provides revealing tales and telling analysis of the Canadian surveillance state.”
