The torture list is now reported on CBC Newsworld website. It is a list in a manual which was not authorized by the government and the minister for the govt says it will be re-written as it does not reflect the views of the govt.
Having said that, what about the reported use of water-board torture in Guatanamo Bay and the past reports of U.S. rendition of terrorist suspects to other countries to be tortured to extract information? What about the famous case of Maher Arar, a Canadian with dual Canadian-Syrian citizenship, who was detained in the U.S. when he was travelling through? He was arrested by U.S. authorities and flown to Syria where he was held in prison for a year and tortured. After finally being released, he was returned too Canada, where the Canadian Gov't ordered a public enquiry. The inquiry exonerated him and ordered the gov't to pay him ten million dollars as compensation. The U.S. govt has so far refused to accept responsibility for what happened to him. Mr. Arar is still on U.S. "no fly" lists and evidence pointed to him as completely innocent. He cannot even fly over the U.S. in an airacraft and cannot travel to the U.S.
As christians, I think we should acknowledge unjust or inhumane treatment of people, whoever they are, and oppose it.

The report that Canada puts U.S. on torture list may be a false report. I follow the CBC TV Newsworld daily and have seen nothing about this on it. I would think if it were true, there would be something on it.
The minority Conservative government we have in Canada is definitely pro U.S. and has been doing a terrific job in Afghanistan. Canadian Forces have several thousand troops on the front line in S. Afghanistan. Also they are involved in training Afghan troops and police.
Several Canadian troops have been killed there in the past few weeks. There have been about seventy Canadian soldiers killed since Canada got involved several years ago. The problem is with some European NATO partners who have not been involved in fighting the Taliban in the dangerous parts of the country. Their govt's policy is not to be in combat roles.
Canada is committed until Feb.2009 as part of NATO under a UN mandate. What they do after that is being debated now and will be decided by the Canadian Parliament this year.
