The Canadian government's complicity in torture is under review at the UN. Specific concerns include: the failure of Canadian consular officials to recognize evidence of torture in the cases of Maher Arar and William Sampson; intelligence sharing with other countries which results in human rights abuses; the practice of returning people to countries where there is a substantial risk of torture; and, the excessive and inappropriate use of TASER guns.
