this case has taken another decidedly unsettling turn.

ottawa citizen

rcmp officers have raided the office and home of a journalist with the ottawa citizen in relation to a story she did on the maher arar case. that story is here

on todays raid, the citizen says,
The simultaneous raids were conducted early this morning on Ms. O'Neill's lowertown home and her office in the the Citizen bureau at City Hall. At her residence, a team of 10 officers was systematically searching drawers, cupboards and computer files.
what will hopefully develop over time is what the rcmp is seeking to do here. are they looking for the source of the leak to the reporter or are they attempting to shut the reporter up from further delving into the case. something is definitely amiss it seems.

im the candyman. and the candyman is back.

Now what the fk are the cops doing to a *writer* who hasn't committed a crime? This is uncool.

well the RCMP take the lead form other sources.. They claim her to be in violation of Section 4 of the Security of Information Act if I am not mistaken.. for publishing a detailed Canadian intelligence dossier on Maher Arar.. guest they felt that a threat to security.. As for the freedom of the press Reporters enjoy no special protections beyond those granted to other citizens, which makes them subject to search warrants. Juliet O'Neill was only trying to do her job and shed light on a story.. so ya a dark day in the history of Canadian Media and the Law..

The guy is now suing the U.S. government. Tom Ridge and John Ashcroft are both named in the suit. I'd sue, too.
