Abstract

Canada’s detention policies and practices are far less draconian than those of our neighbours. There are nevertheless concerns about the commitment to detain more people as a measure of security and deterrence, in part as the response to September 11. This article describes the situation of detention in Canada, making reference to new legislation passed in November 2001.
