This week: Nathalie des Rosiers is General Counsel of Canadian Civil Liberties Association. She is the former Dean of the Faculty of Law – Civil Law Section at the University of Ottawa, and is a past President of the Law Commission of Canada.
Of events at the G20 she writes;
“There are events in Canadian history that have become symbols of the fragility of our democratic rights: the internment of Japanese Canadians during the Second World War or the imposition of the War Measures Act, to name a few. In our view, the policing at the G20 Summit in Toronto last summer will be remembered as one of them.”
