Amnesty urges Canada's Harper to talk rights in Colombia

Amnesty International on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Stephen Harper to raise human rights concerns with his Colombian counterpart when he travels to the South American nation for trade talks. The head of the rights watchdog's Canadian branch, Alex Neve, said it is "absolutely crucial" that Harper discuss rights with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos on the sidelines of a Pacific Alliance leader's summit "in a forceful and clear way and not as afterthoughts." Harper arrives on Thursday in Cali, Colombia for the summit.
