Amnesty International's Concerns Regarding Canada

This is a follow-up to yesterday's posting Amnesty International Report 2007.

The human rights organization Amnesty International had a range of concerns when it comes to Canada:
  • lack of a strategy to address violence against Indigenous women
  • the long-standing land dispute with the Lubicon Cree in Alberta
  • discrimination in child protection policies for Indigenous children
  • cuts in the budget of Status of Women Canada
  • excessive use of force involving taser guns
  • the use of security certificates issued under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act
  • the rendition of dual Canadian nationals tortured abroad
  • the lack of a Refugee Appeal Division for refugee applicants who are turned down
