Should the Government Apologize to Maher Arar?

On the basis of false and distorted information submitted by the RCMP, the Canadian government let Maher Arar swing in the wind for three years. Furthermore the RCMP sent “unfair” and “inaccurate” intelligence reports about Mr. Arar to U.S. authorities. On the basis of this the Americans shipped him off to Syria where he languished in jail for months and was subjected to severe torture.

         This is a severe blot on Canada’s record and Mr. Arar deserves an apology from the government.  A fortiori Mr. Arar also deserves an apology from the head of the RCMP. If Commissioner Zaccardelli does not apologize without reservation in his appearance before a parliamentary committee Prime  Minister Harper should fire him.
