Completed Access to Information Requests

Transitional Period

Federal departments are moving their web content to Canada.ca. As a part of that process, proactive disclosure reports will become available through the Open Government portal.  During this transition, if a proactive disclosure report from a specific department is not yet available on the Open Government portal please refer to Proactive disclosure by department or agency where a copy can be found.  For any questions on this issue, please contact us at open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca .

In the audit of long term detention cases before the Immigration Division, the auditor writes the following: Perhaps the most glaring example is a hearing at which danger to the public is added as reason for detention, for the first time, after a person has already been held for more than a year. There is no new event; CBSA does not argue for the additional ground. The decision cites an extensive history of convictions occurring "not that long ago", without seeming to seriously take into account that almost all convictions took place more than 10 years earlier. The Member .states: ''Of course I will maintain the ground of danger ... " without apparently realizing that he is adding a new ground. He gives no basis for deciding differently. In this case, the ground of public danger is then maintained in subsequent hearings, based on consistency with this decision. In more than one hearing, the detained person tries to challenge the public danger finding. She is unrepresented. At one hearing, her submissions to the effect that she is not a public danger and has never hurt anyone are abruptly cut off. This hearing is presided over by the very presiding Member who first added public danger as a ground; he chides her for not understanding the basis on which she was considered to be a public danger, saying: "You've been through this process of detention review many times now ... I believe you should know that you don't need to have killed someone to be considered to be a danger to the public. You should know that." And yet it was this presiding Member who added public danger as a ground without giving any basis for coming to a different decision on this than at all previous reviews and without any submissions from either party. I have emphasized two passages. I request the full transcripts from which these two quotations are drawn.
