The federal government is falling short on a landmark pledge to document how a free-trade deal with Colombia is affecting human rights in the South American country, non-governmental organizations say.
Ottawa agreed in 2010 to produce an annual report on human rights, in part to assuage fears that abuses might go unchecked as bilateral trade and investment increased. But more than two years after the free-trade agreement came into effect, critics say the government has failed to produce a substantive assessment of the human-rights situation in Colombia.
