The federal government’s Bill S-7 is causing some concern about suspected terrorists being denied their constitutional right to be considered innocent until proved guilty.

.

No need to be concerned, this so called right was and is a a fallacy.  People who have spent months, even years, in prison awaiting trial could hardly be deemed innocent. If an accused person is not considered a danger to the public or likely to abscond he/she should be released on their own recognisance. (bribing the court to be released, also known as bail, should be abolished).  If considered dangerous or likely to abscond a suspect should be held in a detention centre (not prison)  until his/her trial. Regardless of the crime they are charged with, accused persons are really suspects until proved guilty or innocent.
