Part 14 (Additional Part 1 of 2)
Chapter 11. Madness and normality.

In a stunning confirmation of what secret trials opponents have long suspected, a redacted version of a secret Canadian government manual reveals that the draconian conditions of house arrest imposed on those subject to security certificates are being used as a cover for intelligence gathering purposes on the detainees, their families, their supervisors, their friends, and their communities...In essence, house arrest becomes a huge fishing expedition for the government.
