Justice Simon Noel of the Canadian Federal Court reasons that the public’s right to know outweighs the embarrassment that CSIS or the RCMP might suffer on publication of the 2006 inquiry report into the rendition and torture of Maher Arar. “Protection from embarrassment is not covered in our security laws,” Judge Noel wrote. Noel did allow some information in the report to remain secret.

The Canadian Press story by Jim Bronskill is available via the Globe and Mail.
