This is from the CBC. I wonder if there are no sail lists and no bus lists as well. You would think that Abdelrazik could travel by land and then sea if he can't fly.
It looks very much as if Canada again is involved in rendition lite. Rendition lite is opportunistic in that Canada waits until someone whom they want to interrogate goes to another country and then they inform the country that the person is a terror suspect. The person is then imprisoned and interrogated and often tortured as well. In the war on terror you are guilty until the authorities decide otherwise. Maybe one of those U.S. rendition planes is flying empty back to North America and Abdelrazik could hitch a ride.
Family of Canadian stranded by no-fly list to make public appeal

Abousfian Abdelrazik The family of a Montreal man stranded in Sudan for five years because he's on a no-fly list will make a public plea to the Canadian government Tuesday to help bring him home.
"The family just wants to deliver a very clear message … to our prime minister and minister of foreign affairs, simply to bring [him] back. The children want their father back in Canada," his lawyer, Yavar Hameed told CBC News. "He has a life here, he has connections here, and they want him back."
Abousfian Abdelrazik, who was detained by Sudanese authorities while visiting his mother in 2003, has since been released from jail, but remains under police surveillance. Abdelrazik, who is a dual citizen of Canada and Sudan, hasn't been charged with any crime in either country.
Hameed said his client has been deemed a security threat over Canadian Security Intelligence Service suspicions that he's an al-Qaeda agent, something he denies. CSIS documents suggest it was CSIS agents who asked the Sudanese government to arrest Abdelrazik, Hameed said.
Ottawa has been putting up roadblocks to thwart Abdelrazik's attempts to return to Canada, Hameed said, adding that Canada has ignored Sudan's offers to facilitate Abdelrazik's return to Canada.
He said that while Foreign Affairs has said it's been doing everything it can to bring Abdelrazik back, that's clearly not the case.
"The government has been suppressing information, been giving misinformation, has not been telling us what's going on."
Hameed said the Canadian government is willing to offer Abdelrazik one-time travel documents. But Hameed said that's no help because Abdelrazik is still on the no-fly list, no airline will take him, and the Canadian government isn't offering any more help.
Foreign Affairs refused to comment on the case, citing privacy concerns.
