Arar and Mazigh Event

(Ottawa, March 13, 2009)--Maher Arar and Monia Mazigh, the Ottawa couple whose personal ordeal resulting from a botched security investigation became an international scandal, will join a panel of distinguished journalists at Carleton University to discuss media ethics and coverage of Muslims in a time of terror.

The event is open to the public. It takes place at 7 p.m. Monday, March 23 in Porter Hall, second floor of the University Centre on the Carleton campus.

Ian MacLeod, national security correspondent for The Ottawa Citizen, and Evan Dyer, a CBC Radio News correspondent who covered the Arar case, will appear on the panel along with Faiza Hirji, a Carleton instructor whose research includes communications issues related to Muslims. Jeff Sallot, a Carleton journalism professor and former Globe and Mail correspondent, will moderate the panel.
