Some hope for Omar Khadr

Proving Stephen Harper is an “a-hole”, Janice Tibbets reports,

A federal judge has ordered the Harper government to seek Canadian Omar Khadr’s repatriation to Canada.

“The ongoing refusal of Canada to request Mr. Khadr’s repatriation offends a principle of fundamental justice and violates Mr. Khadr’s rights under . . . the charter,” wrote Federal Court Justice James O’Reilly in a ruling released Thursday.

After being tortured and held in captivity for years, I’m hoping Omar Khadr will be set free on his return to Canada.

That is if our Prime Minister will get of his ass and stand up for a teenager being locked up and tortured.

I would smile now, witnessing a judge shame Stephen Harper so publicly and so badly – but Khadr is still in jail, and his government continues to sit on its ass.

  1. A Prime Minister guilty of not upholding the international conventions which this country agreed to; failing to do his duty and look out for the welfare of a Canadian citizen; and Canada is the only “western” country left that has anyone in Guantanamo, which Obama wants to close…and with all that, Harper still refuses and says he will look into appealing the ruling.

    I am still amazed that these sorts of issues are not turning points in the electoral battles — it’s more than once that Canadian citizens have been screwed over because of the anti-Arab and anti-Muslim inclinations of “their” supposed “democratic” government. Nope, instead it’s all about my health care and will I get an extra $150 in tax credits in 2015.
