After September 11, 2001, Canadian governments made significant changes to the law so that non-citizens with suspected links to terrorism could be held indefinitely with no due process. The Courts held that these and other changes including "judicial interrogations" and "convictions for terrorism without intent" are consistent with the Charter of Rights. The range of state secrecy extends now to everything related to national security. Diab contends that these measures are unnecessary and contrary to human rights and freedom.
