Note this still needs a fact check, as i'm not sure about CSIS having that much to do with security certificates. Bawolff 21:59, 24 February 2007 (UTC)Reply

Yes, they are "CSIS Security Certificates" by definition, though they need the sponsorship of two MPs as I recall. I'll add in more info tonight, including some original reporting since I'm actually rather close to one of the men involved. Sherurcij 22:07, 24 February 2007 (UTC)Reply
I would disagree on the CSIS point. CSIS does not actually have all that much to do with the certificates. The certificates are issued under s. 77 of the Immigration and Refugee Protect Act (IRPA) by two federal ministers, not just any MPs. You can read about how the certificates are issued on para. 71 of the Charkaoui case.[1] Also, this decision didn't "overturn anti-terror legislation". It just struck down the provisions in IRPA that outline the process under which certificates are reviewed by the courts. Nothing more. In fact, the power to detain indefinitely was upheld. -- 23:22, 24 February 2007 (UTC)Reply
