Preview Clip

A British Columbia judge has ordered the release of redacted transcripts from a closed-door hearing for two people found guilty of terror charges. B-C Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce says such a proceeding is unnecessary to protect the identity of an alleged Canadian Security Intelligence Service source connected to the investigation of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody. Lawyer Dan Burnett argued for the transcripts' release and describes the ruling as a win for the open-court principle. (A jury found the couple guilty last June of trying to blow up the B-C legislature with what they thought were bombs, but a judge has delayed entering the convictions while lawyers argue over whether police entrapped the pair.)
