Webinar: “The least fair law in Canada”: Why the Extradition Act must be reformed


Canada’s extradition system is broken, with the Extradition Act being described as “the least fair law in Canada.” The Meng Wanzhou case has raised questions about extradition proceedings that have significant foreign policy implications, while the grave violations of the rights of Dr. Hassan Diab, wrongfully extradited to France, lays bare how the system fails Canadian citizens.

Watch this important webinar discussion on why we must act now to fix this broken system and on how a new blueprint, known as the Halifax Proposals, can make it happen.
