Add your name to Amnesty's open letter asking the government of Canada to take action against torture


This is important. Canada has not yet ratified the Optional Protocol to the United Nations Convention against Torture and other forms of Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. Click here to read a letter to Prime Minister Paul Martin, then decide if you'd like to sign on. It's been said before (originally by Edmund Burke, apparently), but bears repeating: "All that it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing."

This story about an Egyptian court sentenced a top opposition leader to five years in prison. Is just another example why it is important to give thanks that we live in Canada.
