>Kelly O’Connor, an immigration lawyer in Toronto, said she gasped out loud when she saw the text. Any medical worker who denies care to someone hurt in a war zone is committing a “serious breach of the Geneva Convention,” she said in an interview. > >“It’s completely outrageous that the government would ask these kinds of questions because it’s trying to promote that someone would violate the Geneva Conventions in wartime, which is really not something that the Canadian military stands for,” O’Connor said.

>Vancouver-based immigration lawyer Randall Cohn said the questions in the letter are “patently illegal and absolutely egregious.” He has seen two such letters asking about medical treatment of Hamas members — sent to a doctor and a nurse — and he is aware of two more, he said in an interview. > >The people who received these letters and brought them to lawyers were afraid to do it, Cohn said, because they worried they would be penalized by Canadian immigration officials. He wonders how many other people have received similar letters but haven’t shown them to anyone out of fear.

>The federal Immigration Department said that an interview with its minister, Marc Miller, was not possible.

Weaponizing Reality: The Dawn of Neurowarfare
  • Are there any problems with this particular story? I found it to be mostly collating current thought about BCI and its applications.

  • DND ignores requests to release information, undercutting federal law, MPs are told
  • National Defence is continuing to ignore requests to release government records as required under law and in the process is undermining a watchdog agency that reports to parliament, members of Parliament have heard.

    The House of Commons Committee on National Defence is conducting hearings into the lack of openness and transparency within the department and the Canadian military. So far it has heard that National Defence violates the law in almost 40 per cent of the requests it receives to produce records under the Access to Information Act.

    In an increasing number of cases, the department is claiming that records don’t exist, the committee heard.

    At times such responses strain credibility. For instance, National Defence claimed not a single document or any information whatsoever was sent to Anita Anand, then the defence minister, throughout the four-month period covering the selection and announcement of the F-35 fighter jet in a $19-billion procurement deal.
