Sophie Harkat will be present with us as we share a documentary and discussion about something that has touched her own life personally—a trial based on secret evidence of alleged terror crimes in France, where Canadian Mohamed Harkat was sent for trial based on secret evidence he was not given access to in order to dispute in a hearing.  The 2014 documentary “The Secret Trial 5” goes into trials with secret evidence in more depth.

Parking: There is limited metered parking on campus on Séraphin-Marion (the continuation of Wilbrod west of Cumberland) and in the adjacent lot east of Tabaret Hall, and also on Louis Pasteur, between MacDonald Hall and Gendron Hall. The meters are enforced 24/7. There is also a pay-and-display lot beside Simard Hall. The best bet is on nearby streets in Sandy Hill, e.g., Henderson, where there are signs for 2 or 3 hour parking up to 7:00 p.m., unrestricted after 7:00.
