I am writing to you as one private citizen of Canada to another.
As a former Supreme Court Justice and upholder of the Constitution, you must recognize that the government's move to employ you to examine the documents relevant to the Afghan detainee ruckus is, at least, not very popular among some knowledgeable commenters.
To many, me included, it is a mockery of the concept of Parliamentary supremacy.
It is, further, merely the latest in a long series of anti-democratic initiatives by this Conservative government.
No one questions your ability or your reputation.
The issue is whether Parliament is to be allowed to do its job.
Please. Reject the assignment.
Write, phone, fax The Hon. Frank Iacobucci, from here.
