Canadian government ditches mediation talks in $27,000,000 lawsuit by accused jihadi who was detained overseas


A sweeping $27-million lawsuit against the federal government brought by a Sudanese-Canadian who was detained overseas - and not allowed to return home for six years - is headed back to court, CBC News has learned. A former CSIS analyst who worked counter-terrorism cases at CSIS and Public Safety said previous lawsuit settlements in cases where links to terror groups were alleged went over like a "lead balloon" with the public.
