  6. Japanese Canadian Internment "Born in Canada, brought up on big-band jazz, Fred Astaire and the novels of Rider Haggard, I had perceived myself to be as Canadian as the beaver. I hated rice. I had committed no crime. I was never charged, tried or convicted of anything. Yet I was fingerprinted and interned." Ken Adachi, Toronto Star, Sept. 24, 1988.

  7. War Measures Act “-Yea, well there’s a lot of bleeding hearts around who just don’t like to see people with helmets and guns. All I can say is go on and bleed. But its more important to keep law and order in this society than to be worried about weak kneed people who don’t like the looks of soldiers in the streets.” “-At any cost? How far would you go with that?” “-Well just watch me.” Pierre Trudeau and CBC News Reporter, 1970

  8. French Bans on Religious Symbolism “Those who do not accept France’s secularism are not welcome on French soil.” Nicolas Sarkozy, July 2007

  9. The Suspension of Rights in the Face of Security “Friends, let us never forget that nations are not judged by the laws they write up and lock up in libraries, nations are judged by how they act at times when their dedication to these laws [is] truly tested. Every country that has chosen to sacrifice the liberties of its citizens and hold them in shackles has done that out of belief that this is necessary for its security. “We, Canadians, know better. We know that security without liberty is simply imprisonment. Nothing is more secure than a maximum security prison. We deserve better. We cannot let Canada turn into a maximum security prison by imprisoning one Canadian without the presumption of innocence till proven guilty and without the full opportunity to defend themselves.” Dr. TyseerAboulnasr, July 2007
