Canada's national security certificate law was upheld in the face of its first constitutional challenge at the Federal Court, the Toronto Star reported. Justice Allan Lufty ruled Monday that it was "premature" to challenge provisions of the law because the five cases of non-citizens the government accuses of terrorism offences and wants deported are only now underway. The law had been redrafted by Parliament in February, after the Supreme Court struck down a previous law as unconstitutional.
